Abigail Bodner

Assistant Professor, Departments of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Abigail Bodner has joined the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) in January 2024. Previously, she was a Simons Society Junior Fellow working at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences in New York University. Bodner completed her PhD from the Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences at Brown University. She holds Master’s degrees in Applied Mathematics from Brown University and in Atmospheric Sciences from Tel Aviv University. Bodner’s research spans climate, physical oceanography, geophysical fluid dynamics, and turbulence. She investigates multi-scale turbulent interactions in the upper ocean using a combination of theory, numerical models, and data driven methods. Professor Bodner is the creator and co-founder of Climatematch Academy, an international volunteer-driven organization teaching computational tools for climate science.
