Robert A. Rohde
I am a recent Physics PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. I joined the physics department, following undergraduate degrees in physics and mathematics, but despite having taken all the traditional physics coursework (e.g. quantum mechanics, cosmology, general relativity, etc.), I ultimately discovered those topics are not what I want to devote my life to. Most of my research time has been focused on the earth sciences, climatology and related areas. Currently I am employed as the lead scientist for Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature.
My Wikipedia was August 3, 2003, though it took many months of sporadic drive-by editing before I really became engaged in the community. I've been an administrator since August 2005 (though it feels like a whole lot longer). I am historically also a bot operator (though I do not run it currently) and have contributed several patches to the Mediawiki software running Wikipedia.to
Much of my work on wiki has been related to climate change/global warming, but I also dabble in a wide array of other areas, mostly sciences, related to my interests and skills. One of my specialties is the creation of custom graphics to use as illustrations. This has led to an unusual spin off as I have collected my work with that of others to create a new website devoted to global warming data and art.
Wikipedians can reach me by leaving messages on my talk page. I'll usually respond within a day or two.
