EPS Professor Daniel Stolper has been selected as a 2020 Sloan Fellow in Ocean Sciences. Daniel Stolper focuses on generating and interpreting climate records of ancient Earth, primarily by studying the modern carbon cycle and reconstructing past atmospheric and marine oxygen concentrations. Professor Stolper is one of nine early career faculty at the University of California, Berkeley to receive this honor.
The Sloan Research Fellowships are open to scholars in eight scientific and technical fields: chemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, computational and evolutionary molecular biology, neuroscience, ocean sciences and physics. Candidates are nominated by their fellow scientists, and winners are selected by independent panels of senior scholars on the basis of the candidates’ research accomplishments, creativity and potential to become leaders in their fields.
