Lise is an early career scientist interested in the role of the oceans in climate transitions, in particular across abrupt climate change. She is using a variety of tracers from paleoclimate records in conjunction with Earth System Climate Models to reconstruct past ocean circulation changes and assess the impact of ocean circulation changes on the climate. Her work aims as well at identifying the thresholds and feedbacks between the ocean, the carbon cycle and the climate system. Lise's research is also about improving our understanding of the mechanisms, strengths and limitations of the paleo-proxies.
