I completed my BSc and MSc in physics and climate science in Paris, at the École Normale Supérieure and Université Paris VI.
I then obtained a PhD in geophysics from the University of British Columbia and am now a Marie Curie Research fellow in the department of geography and a Junior Research fellow at the Sidney Sussex college.
My main research interest is to understand interactions between volcanoes and climate. Volcanic eruptions are a well-known natural factor of climate variability, with large volcanic eruptions being followed by a cooling of Earth’s surface temperature. The long-term objective of my research is to unravel how ongoing climate change will affect the processes that control the climatic impacts of volcanic eruptions. For example, will we experience enhanced or decreased surface cooling following future volcanic eruptions?
When I’m not doing research, I really enjoy exploring the outdoors. I had the most amazing time paddling the coasts of British Columbia during my PhD, and I am very excited to discover the UK backcountry in the coming years.
