Prior to returning to NCAR as an Associate Director, Dr. Brasseur was Director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg for six years, and headed NCAR's Atmospheric Chemistry Division from 1990 to 2000. He has continued as an NCAR senior scientist and senior research associate within the Advanced Study Program. A native of Belgium, Brasseur holds two engineering degrees and a doctorate in aeronomy from the Free University of Brussels, where his Ph.D. dissertation dealt with the effects of nitrogen oxides on stratospheric ozone. He completed his postdoctoral work at the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy, where he worked on advanced models of photochemistry and chemical transport in the middle atmosphere.
