Jonathan Moch is a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow working in the U.S. Department of State's Office of Global Change and with the Office of the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.

Before arriving at the State Department, Jonathan was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University with appointments to the Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group in the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Center for Climate, Health, the Global Environment (C-CHANGE) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and the Environment and Natural Resources and Science, Technology, and Public Policy Programs at the Harvard Kennedy School. Jonathan's research interests have centered on the interactions between climate change and atmospheric chemistry, pathways to decarbonization, and the policy and public health implications of climate issues.

Prior to arriving at Harvard, Jonathan worked at the World Resources Institute (WRI) in Washington, D.C. as the ChinaFAQs Project Specialist in WRI's Climate and Energy Program. In this role, he worked in collaboration with a network of internationally renowned experts to distill important scientific research and analyses about China's energy and climate change policies and actions into materials designed to educate U.S. policy makers and opinion leaders, including federal agencies and Congress.

Jonathan holds a Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences with a Secondary Field in Science, Technology and Society and a S.M. in Environmental Science and Engineering from Harvard University. He received his A.B. with high honors from the Department of Geosciences and from the School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, with minors in Environmental Studies and Chinese Language and Culture.
