Clark Endowed Faculty Fellow

Harihar Rajaram is a CU President’s Teaching Scholar, Clark Faculty Fellow and a professor in Civil, Environmental & Architectural Engineering. He received his BS from the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras, India, his MS from the University of Iowa, and his ScD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University before joining CU Boulder in 1993. He received the NSF CAREER Award in 1998. Rajaram's research focuses on coupled multi-physics processes and reactive transport in fractured rock, which is relevant to subsurface energy and water resources, and natural geologic and biogeochemical phenomena. In recent years, he has also extended his research focus to glaciers and ice sheet response to climate warming. His papers on thermodynamic mechanisms in ice sheets were cited in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2013 Fifth Assessment Report. He is an editor of the American Geophysical Union journal Water Resources Research. He received the College of Engineering & Applied Science Charles Hutchinson Memorial Teaching Award in 1999 and the Faculty Research Award in 2016.
