Véronique Lago completed her B.Sc. in Physics at the Université de Sherbrooke (Canada) in 2007. She then worked as a research assistant between 2007 and 2008 in physical oceanography at the Institut National de Recherche Scientifique in Québec City (Canada) on observational physical data in the Canadian Arctic. In 2011, she completed her M.Sc. in physical oceanography at the University of Alberta (Canada) analysing the role of ocean model resolution on the freshwater input from Greenland’s ice sheet to the Labrador Sea and its impact on the subpolar North Atlantic circulation.  In 2016, Véronique completed her Ph.D. in physical oceanography, at University of Tasmania and CSIRO, studying the effect of decomposed long-term changes at the ocean surface onto the changes in ocean properties in the ocean interior.
Véronique’s interests are in understanding the links and feedbacks between climate change signals as forcing at the surface of the ocean and changes in the ocean interior. In particular, using long-term projected estimates of the meltwater input from Antarctica from melting icebergs and basal runoff to evaluate the multi-decadal impact on ocean circulation.
