Harbor receives honorary doctorate from Stockholm University
Dr. Jonathan Harbor, Purdue professor of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences, was selected as a 2015 honorary doctor for Stockholm University in the category of Natural Science. Harbor and his seven fellow honorees were chosen because they contributed in distinctive ways to the University's activities in research and education.
Harbor is a leading researcher in physical geography and an innovator in education and academic leadership. His collaborations with Stockholm University have produced joint publications, combined graduate and post-doctoral student mentoring, and joint field and online teaching. As a Marie-Curie Fellow, he helped invigorate Stockholm University alumni relations programs and launched a pilot program connecting PhD students with local teachers and children.
