Eric was born in New York City before moving to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to peruse an undergraduate degree in Chemistry. Cured of a life in pure chemistry by a summer internship, he completed undergraduate degrees in Geology and in Chemistry, and them his PhD in Geochemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. Following his degrees, Eric moved to Toulouse France, where he is a Research Director at the GET laboratory. He also serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Iceland as part of his international research program.
Eric’s research focuses on developing the fundamental geochemical basis for sustainable growth and managing the Earth. Some of his current/recent projects include:
- Carbon capture and storage, focusing on the subsurface mineralization of carbon dioxide – including co-managing the CARBFIX project in Iceland (www.carbfix.com)
- Quantifying the global cycles of the elements and the feedback between Earth surface weathering and climate.
- Development and refinement of isotopic tools to quantify past climates and environmental processes.
Quantifying the kinetics and thermodynamics of fluid-rock interaction
