Dr. Lubin started as a postgraduate researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 1990, and joined the academic ranks as an Assistant Research Physicist in 1993. His career has benefitted greatly from SIO’s numerous opportunities for field work and instrument development. He has participated regularly in research cruises and remote polar field deployments with equipment for atmospheric spectroscopy and radiometry in the ultraviolet through middle-infrared, and also has ongoing climate research programs using satellite remote sensing. An additional facet of Dr. Lubin’s research involves astrophysical study of solar-type stars, as analogs of solar variability and effects on terrestrial climate.
