Biography:
Dr. Soden received his B.S. degree from the University of Miami, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Chicago. Before returning to the University of Miami, Dr. Soden was a Visiting Scientist and Lecturer at Princeton University, and a Physical Scientist with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, NJ. He has authored over 100 peer-reviewed papers on weather and climate change.

Dr. Soden uses satellite observations and computer model simulations to understand how the atmosphere responds to natural and anthropogenic changes in climate. Specific areas of interest include the response of water vapor, clouds, precipitation and extreme weather events (e.g., tropical cyclones, floods, droughts) to increasing greenhouse gases.
