Gabriel Chiodo, Ph.D.

Spanish National Research Council

Gabriel Chiodo is a research scientist at ETH Zürich who will soon start a tenured junior research group leader position at the Spanish National Research Council. His research expertise is in the field of chemistry-climate modeling, with particular focus on ozone-climate interactions, stratosphere-troposphere coupling, radiative forcing and climate variability. He received his Ph.D. in 2014 at Complutense University in Madrid and was then a postdoctoral fellow at Columbia University from 2015 until 2018. He actively participated in a large National Science Foundation project on ozone depletion and its effects in the climate system. From 2019 until 2023, he has been leading a research group on ozone-climate interactions at ETH Zürich, funded via a competitive Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) grant. His research has demonstrated, for the first time, the role of Arctic ozone in driving surface climate in the Northern Hemisphere. Chiodo is a steering committee member of the Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative and of the International Commission on the Middle Atmosphere. He was a co-author of the recent 2022 World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme Ozone Assessment report. Beginning in June 2024, he will be leading a new Horizon Europe project funded by the European Research Council to investigate the role of stratospheric composition in a changing climate.
