Rajul (Raj) Pandya is the director of AGU’s Thriving Earth Exchange, which aims to erase the boundaries that separate people from science by connecting scientists, communities, and sponsors worldwide and helping them work together to develop local solutions that have global reach.

Prior to working with AGU, Raj worked was the Director of Spark: UCAR Education and Outreach.  Spark’s mission is to engage people and communities in the wonder and discovery of science, especially as related to the atmosphere. Raj has been lucky enough to manage internships and mentor students, teach in college and high school, collaborate with diverse communities internationally and in the US, and work in digital libraries. His PhD investigated the large-scale organization and impact of long-lived thunderstorms, and since then he has been part of research and application teams in topics that include student learning, citizen-science, and public health – all as they relate to the atmospheric sciences.

Raj believes that scientists, especially Earth scientists, can help make the world a better place for all its residents. His career is about trying to make that happen.

He lives in Colorado with his wife Amy, a physician, their daughter, Maya, and their dog, Nala.
