Harihar Rajaram, a professor in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering, has been elected as a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union.

AGU Fellows are recognized for exceptional contributions to earth and space sciences through a breakthrough, discovery, innovation, or sustained scientific impact in their field. Hari was cited for his fundamental contributions to stochastic subsurface hydrology, coupled flow, transport and reactions in fractured rock, and developing models of hydrologic processes involved in glacier and ice sheet response to climate change. 

Hari’s research focuses on developing process-based mathematical models to shed light on complex environmental and earth systems and to predict future trends within those systems. His recent research has explored the biogeochemical impact of global warming in various environments. 

He will be formally recognized at AGU’s Honors Ceremony and Banquet held in mid-December during the organization’s fall meeting in Chicago.
