Jonathan Moch

Jonathan Moch is a Graduate Research Fellow at the Harvard China Project and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences with Harvard’s Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group. Jonathan’s research interests center on the interactions and feedbacks between climate change and atmospheric chemistry, with a particular focus on China.

Before arriving at Harvard, Jonathan worked in the Climate and Energy Program at the World Resources Institute (WRI), a non-profit environmental think tank in Washington, D.C. as the ChinaFAQs Project Specialist. Prior to WRI, Jonathan worked at Princeton University as a Research Associate in the Department of Geosciences. His research, which grew out of his senior thesis, focused on refining the models used to predict the impact of climate change on methane emissions from arctic permafrost.

In 2014, Jonathan was awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship in Climate and Large-Scale Atmospheric Dynamics. Jonathan holds an AB from the Department of Geosciences and from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, with minors in Environmental Studies and Chinese Language and Culture. During his summers while attending Princeton, Jonathan worked at NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and studied Mandarin at Beijing Normal University.
