Professor of Earth & Ocean Sciences (2000 - 2005)
Professor Lozier is a physical oceanographer with interests in large-scale ocean circulation. Her current research focuses on the ocean’s role in climate variability and climate change. Professor Lozier’s primary pedagogical goal is for students to develop a physical understanding of how and why the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans move. At another level, her goal is for students to become facile with physical concepts of natural systems. She was the recipient of a National Science Foundation Early Career Award in 1996, received a Duke University Award for Excellence in Mentoring in 2007, and was elected a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society in 2008.
