New Interim Director Named at Lamont-Doherty

Steven Goldstein, the Higgins Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences and a member of the LDEO Geochemistry Division, has recently been appointed Interim Director of Lamont-Doherty, replacing Maureen Raymo who resigned to focus on her research.

Professor Goldstein has published more than 170 peer-reviewed papers. His research has addressed a wide range of topics from the early history of the Earth, to mantle and continent evolution, to recent climate change. He is a recipient of the American Geophysical Union’s Norman L. Bowen Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the fields of volcanology, geochemistry and petrology, and is a Fellow of the AGU and the Geochemical Society/ European Association of Geochemistry.

Professor Goldstein also served as the lead investigator of the first NSF award that funded participation of members of underrepresented groups and first-generation university students at the annual Goldschmidt Conference.
