Prof. Henrik Svensmark leads the Center for Sun-Climate Research at the National Space Institute in the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). He previously held research positions at the University of California Berkeley, the Nordic Institute of Theoretical Physics, the Niels Bohr Institute and the Danish Meteorological Institute. He has published more than 50 scientific papers on theoretical and experimental physics, including a succession of landmark papers on climate physics.
Svensmark received the Knud Højgaard Anniversary Research Prize in 1997 and the Energy-E2 Research Prize in 2001.
