Dr. Marcus C. Sarofim
Marcus Sarofim has been an environmental scientist in the Climate Science & Impacts Branch in the EPA's Climate Change Division since September 2010. For the two years before that, he was placed in the same location but as a AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) Science & Technology Policy Fellow. The AAAS program is designed to let PhD scientists contribute to and learn about the government science policy process. Marcus earned his PhD at MIT using computer models to study the implications for the both the climate and economic system of different ways to includes different gases (like carbon dioxide and methane) within one climate policy. Before that, he was a chemist working on topics as diverse as trying to examine the structure of the brain protein that reacts with nicotine or how to figure out ways to make only right-handed or left-handed molecules in laboratory chemical reactions. Back when he was working in a chemistry lab he also used to help with chemistry magic shows at local schools, making solutions change colors and freezing things with liquid nitrogen. Alas, he hasn't figured out a way to work chemical experiments into his climate change talks...
