Daniel Babin is a geologist, climate scientist, and science communicator from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He recently completed his Ph.D. at Columbia University, which focused on the impacts of changes in ocean bottom water oxygen on the global carbon system. He's allied with Co-Founding Dean of the Climate School Maureen Raymo as a postdoctoral researcher to probe topics related to metal deposits on the seafloor called polymetallic nodules that might be a powerful source of raw materials to fuel the green energy transition. Daniel has demonstrated his effectiveness as a science communicator online, where he makes short videos that reach millions of viewers interested in learning about Earth Science.
