Robert H. Socolow is an American physicist.Robert Socolow received his Bachelors degree in physics from Harvard College in 1959 and his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Harvard University in 1964. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Currently he is a professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University where he has served since 1971.

Besides research at Princeton University, he also teaches in the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. From 1992 to 2002 he was an editor for Annual Review of Energy and the Environment. He is also serving on two committees of the National Academies: Americas Energy Future and Americas Climate Choices.Robert Socolow is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. His current research focuses on global carbon management and fossil-carbon sequestration.

He is the co-principal investigator (with ecologist Stephen Pacala) of Princeton Universitys Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI), a fifteen-year (2000-2015) research project supported by BP (and formerly by Ford). Under CMI, Princeton has launched new, coordinated research in environmental science, energy technology, geological engineering, and public policy.Pacala and Socolow are the authors of “Stabilization wedges: Solving the climate problem for the next 50 years with current technologies” (Science, August 13, 2004).

Socolow recently served on two committees of the National Academies: “Americas Energy Future” and “Americas Climate Choices.” He was a member of the Grand Challenges for Engineering Committee of the National Academy of Engineering. He was the editor of Annual Review of Energy and the Environment, 1992-2002.Socolow received a Ph.D. in theoretical high energy physics in l964 from Harvard University.

He was an assistant professor of physics at Yale University from l966 to l97l. He was awarded the 2003 Leo Szilard Lectureship Award by the American Physical Society: “For leadership in establishing energy and environmental problems as legitimate research fields for physicists, and for demonstrating that these broadly defined problems can be addressed with the highest scientific standards.”
