Chris Reinhard, School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences associate professor, co-authors a new theory about the Earth's phosphorus cycle, which could give scientists a better chance to detect signs of life on other rocky planets in the search for habitable worlds.
Raquel Lieberman
Lieberman, a professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, is the inaugural chair of the Kelly Sepcic Pfeil, Ph.D. Faculty Endowment Fund. The College of Sciences alumna-funded effort is designed to increase the number of women faculty in the School, and to help narrow the gender gap in STEM degrees and careers.
Georgia Tech-Lorraine
For over 30 years, Georgia Tech-Lorraine has led the European presence in Georgia Tech’s commitment to academics, research, and innovation. Now, the campus joins an extensive network of universities and industry partners throughout Europe with that same commitment.

A new cohort study, led by researchers at Emory University in collaboration with Pengfei Liu and Rodney Weber of Georgia Tech's School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, shows that long-term exposure to air pollution may increase the risks for developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
William York
Learn about four undergrad researchers serving as catalysts for innovation and development in their respective fields — and representing Georgia Tech’s mission in developing leadership and improving the human condition.
The Future of Space Exploration
Georgia Tech points to what’s next, and how the Institute will contribute. “Discovering life beyond Earth would fundamentally change humanity’s perspective on our place in the universe,” says Earth and Atmospheric Sciences' Jennifer Glass. “Integrating astrobiology – the search of life in the universe – into space missions in order to know if and when we detect life on other planetary bodies, including exoplanets, is an exciting challenge currently underway.”
