Stieglitz joins OPP as Program Director for Arctic Natural Sciences
November 19, 2019
Marc Stieglitz has joined OPP’s Arctic Science Section’s Arctic Natural Sciences' (ANS) team of program officers, alongside Cynthia Suchman and Xujing Jia Davis.
Immediately prior to joining NSF, Stieglitz was an associate professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech.
He has been active in Arctic research since the early 1990s. His research interests are at the interface of the fields of hydrology, ecology, and biogeochemistry. He also brings considerable expertise in modelling, remote sensing and cyberinfrastructure to the position.
Stieglitz previously served in a temporary position in ANS from 2015-2018. He also served as program officer in the Arctic System Science program and played a critical role in linking the section and OPP’s Arctic community to the programs in NSF’s Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure and EarthCube.
He earned his doctorate in geological sciences from Columbia University in the City of New York.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2019, its budget is $8.1 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
