Raymond Jeanloz—University of California, Berkeley (Chair)
Raymond Jeanloz is a Professor of Earth and Planetary Science and of Astronomy at the University of California at Berkeley. He has done pioneering work in mineral physics, measurement of materials properties and simulation of deep-Earth processes using diamond-anvil and shock-wave experiments, elucidation of the core-mantle boundary as a chemically reactive zone, and study of the role of water in mantle processes and deep earthquake generation. His research and teaching have been recognized through a MacArthur Award, the American Geophysical Union’s Macelwane Award, and Fellowship in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and American Association for the Advancement of Science. He previously served as chair of the National Research Council’s Board on Earth Sciences and Resources. He is currently the chair of the National Academy of Sciences’ (NAS) Committee on International Security and Arms Control in the Policy and Global Affairs Division, and was elected as a member of the NAS in 2004.
Stephen P. Cohen—The Brookings Institution
