Understanding the Earth and its environments through the magnetism of natural materials

Joshua Feinberg is a geophysicist who studies the magnetic properties of natural materials to advance understanding of the behavior of the Earth’s magnetic field, track environmental change through time, and characterize novel magnetic materials. He combines magnetic methods with field geology and electron microscopy to explore processes that operate on global, tectonic, outcrop, and nanometer scales. Feinberg is also passionate about improving the effectiveness and inclusivity of undergraduate education.
