Dr. Eugene Rozanov
Physical-Meteorological Observatory Davos/World Radiation Center (PMOD/WRC) and Institute for Atmospheric, and Climate Science/ETH Zuerich (IAC/ETHZ), Switzerland
Eugene Rozanov received the M.S. degree from Leningrad State University, Leningrad, Russia in 1979; and the Ph.D. degree from the Main Geophysical Observatory, Leningrad, Russia, in 1986, both degrees in physics and mathematics. Since 2001, he has been a Research Associate and a Project Manager at PMOD/WRC, Davos and IAC ETH, Zurich, Switzerland; accomplishing a development of climate-chemistry model on the basis MAECHAM4 and its application for a study of the solar-climate connections. During 1997–2000, he has been a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA. This position enabled him to achieve the development and application of UIUC climate-chemistry model. He also held a position as a Senior Research Scientist at the Main Geophysical Observatory, St. Petersburg, Russia from 1988 to 1997, through which he contributed to the development of the photochemical code for climate-chemistry models and to the development and application of 1D and 2D radiation-photochemistry models. Dr. Rozanov held the position of a Research Scientist at the Main Geophysical Observatory, Leningrad, Russia 1979–1988, adding to the development of the radiation code for climate and general circulation models. Currently, he is a Research Associate and a Project Manager at the Physical and Meteorological Observatory/World Radiation Center, Davos, and at the Institute of Atmospheric and Climate Science, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland. Dr. Rozanov has a great experience in climate change, atmospheric chemistry, radiative transport, numerical methods, sun-earth connections.
