Drew Shindell is a physicist and an ozone specialist and professor at Duke University's Nicholas School. His H-index is 82[1] and he is listed as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher[2]


Shindell is a physicist who got his B.A. at University of California at Berkeley in 1988 and his Ph.D at State University of New York in 1995. From 2000 to 2014 he was a climatologist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. In 2014 he was named Professor of Climate Sciences at Duke University.

Research interests[edit]

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. Among his research interests are:

  • Long-term changes in climate and climate variability patterns
  • Chemistry and climate response to solar variation
  • Stratospheric ozone response to increasing greenhouse gases
  • Tropospheric ozone response to changing greenhouse gas and ozone precursor emissions
  • The impact of ozone changes on surface ultraviolet radiation
  • Antarctic ozone hole variability
  • Improving understanding of ozone chemistry
