Kevin Gurney is an atmospheric scientist and ecologist who studies global change. In particular, he aims to characterize the global carbon cycle and to quantify changes in the distribution of carbon between the land and the atmosphere. To do this, he focuses on carbon dioxide emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels and exchange of carbon with land plants and soils.
Through his work, Gurney also uses advances in carbon cycle science to improve the decision-making process for climate change policies. He has worked extensively on domestic and international climate change policymaking. Gurney is an NSF CAREER award recipient, a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and Sigma Xi�s 2010 Young Investigator award recipient.
