The Storer Life Sciences Lectureship presents Paul Falkowski, Distinguished Professor in the Departments of Earth and Planetary Sciences and Marine and Coastal Sciences and the Founding Director of the Rutgers Energy Institute: "The Origin and Emergence of Global Coupled Biogeochemical Cycles."

Dr. Falkowski is a biological oceanographer in the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University. He is a distinguished professor, Bennett L. Smith Chair in Business and Natural Resources, as well as the Board of Governors Professor and Director of the Rutgers Energy Institute. His research interests are focused on three key areas – origins of life, how electron transfer reactions are mediated, and how organisms transformed the geochemistry of our planet.

Dr. Falkowski was elected to the American Geophysical Union, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Sciences. He was awarded the A.G. Huntsman Award for Excellence in the Marine Sciences, the G. Evelyn Hutchison Award, the European Geosciences Union Vernadsky Medal, and the ECI Prize. Last but not least, Dr. Falkowski shared the 2018 Tyler Prize, known as the Nobel Prize of the environment, with Dr. James J. McCarthy of Harvard University.
