Drew Shindell is an ozone specialist and professor at Duke University's Nicholas School. He was formerly a climatologist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. His research is concerned with global climate change, climate variability, and atmospheric chemistry. He uses climate models to investigate chemical changes such as the depletion of the ozone layer, climate changes such as global warming, and the connections between these two.
