David Hastings  is a marine geochemist and chemical oceanographer. He landed on the shores of Tampa Bay in 2000 to teach marine science, environmental studies and chemistry at Eckerd College. Dr. Hastings started this adventure studying chemistry at Princeton University. He received his Ph.D. in chemical oceanography from University of Washington. His primary research interest is paleoclimatology, which is to reveal the history of past climate changes as revealed in ocean sediments. 

Dr. Hastings believes that it is important for scientists to actively engage in policy conversations with the public and with elected officials. He was selected as “Got Science” Champion by the Un-ion of Concerned Scientists for his outreach and education on cli-mate change issues. 

David focuses on solutions in addition to laying out the scientific basis for the tremendous concern scientists have for the future of our planet.
