Diversity at the University

An Inclusive Community

The University of Rochester envisions itself as a community that welcomes, encourages, and supports individuals who desire to contribute to and benefit from the institution’s missions of teaching, research, patient care, performance, and community service. In a pluralistic culture, that community includes faculty, students, and staff who represent important differences. Read More

Thomas Weber
Assistant Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences

Thomas Weber joins the University after completing a postdoctoral position at the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington.

A biogeochemical oceanographer, Weber uses numerical models to explore the links among marine ecosystems, elemental cycling, and the global climate system. His doctoral work provided insights into oceanic sources and sinks of fixed nitrogen—a critical nutrient that sustains primary production in the ocean. In his postdoctoral work, Weber explored the timescales of oceanic carbon storage as well as the transfer of carbon to the deep ocean by sinking organic particles. His work has been published in the journals Nature, Science, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and has been recognized by awards from the Geochemical Society and the American Geophysical Union.

Weber is involved in the global GEOTRACES project, which aims to map the distributions of rare elements in the ocean and understand their cycling processes. He is designing new data-assimilating models to interpret observations from the ongoing field campaign and has received funding from the National Science Foundation to continue this work at Rochester. #URDiversity #FabFacultyFridays
