Peter’s research interests lie in developing a better understanding of the climate system. His current research involves evaluating historical climate events; predicting temperature, hydrological, and sea level variations; and assessing the implication of climate change for food production. Peter generally pursues these questions through combining disparate and peculiar data with theory. Peter received his B.S. in physics from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Subsequent to serving in the military, Peter received a Ph.D. in climate physics and chemistry from MIT, worked at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and joined the faculty at Harvard in 2007. In 2012, Peter worked as a senior climate advisor at the Office of Science Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President. He has been awarded a MacArthur 'genius' grant, a Packard Fellowship, and the American Geophysical Union's Macelwane Medal.
