Richard Moss

Andlinger Center Non-Resident fellow

Senior scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Joint Global Change Research Institute, University of Maryland

Gerhard R. Andlinger Visiting Fellow in Energy and the Environment (2019-2020)

Location: 226 Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment
Phone Number: 609-258-5158
Email Address: rmoss@princeton.edu

Research Description:

Moss’s research focuses on the role of human agency and decision making in global environmental changes such as climate change. While at the Andlinger Center, Moss is working on coastal adaptation and resilience, focusing on decision support for development of time-dependent adaptation pathways.
