Professor Fung explains the current science of global climate change and the role of human activities. An internationally recognized expert on the global carbon cycle and climate change, she currently teaches and conducts research at UC Berkeley on the physics of climate change, ecosystem dynamics, and biogeochemical cycles. Using global carbon-climate models, the goal of her work is to project future co-evolution of climate and atmospheric CO2. Professor Fung is one of ten women scientists featured in the series Women's Adventures in Science written for middle school students. Her numerous awards include the NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal, and the Roger Revelle Medal of the American Geophysical Union. In 2005, she was cited as one of Scientific American’s Top 50. Professor Fung is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society.
