Faculty Profile

BIOGRAPHY

  • Ph.D., Department of Geological Sciences, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Columbia University, 1995.
  • M.S., Applied Geophysics, Graduate School of Engineering, Columbia University , 1985.
  • B.S., Physics, Columbia University, Columbia University, 1983.

Dr. Marc Stieglitz is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. He earned his BA in physics from Columbia College of Columbia University and shortly thereafter earned an MS in applied geophysics from the Henry Krumb School of Mines at Columbia University. After spending several years in industry, Dr Stieglitz earned a Ph.D. in hydrology at Columbia's Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory. He was as NOAA Global Change Post-doctoral Fellow at The Ecosystem Center of the Marine Biological Laboratory. From 1996 through 2003 Dr. Stieglitz was a Doherty Associate Research Scientist at Columbia's Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory. He joined the faculty of Georgia Institute of Technology in 2003. His research interests lie in hydrology, scale issues in hydrology, and in particular, Dr. Stieglitz works at the interface between hydrology, biology and biogeochemistry.
