Harihar Rajaram is a professor of environmental health and engineering who uses mathematical models to shed light on complex environmental and earth systems and to predict future trends within those systems.

His recent investigations have explored the environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing, including human-produced earthquakes resulting from the injection of fracking fluids into deep geologic formations, the biogeochemical impacts of climate warming in alpine and other environments, and the response of glaciers and ice sheets to climate warming—research that is illuminating the climate change’s subtle public health effects.

Rajaram received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1991.
