Associate Professor in Climate Physics, Laure’s research focuses on the role of the oceans in climate. The main emphasis is to study the influence of ocean dynamics on regional and global scales, through the analysis of observations and a hierarchy of numerical simulations. Recently, she has worked on a wide range of topics including ocean warming and sea level rise as a consequence of climate change, the use of artificial intelligence to improve ocean/climate simulations, and the impact of ocean-atmosphere interaction on weather and climate in the Euro-Atlantic sector.
Laure completed her PhD in Climate Dynamics at Harvard University before joining Oxford initially as an Oxford Martin Fellow and then an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics. She was a Junior Research Fellow at Balliol College from 2009 to 2011, a lecturer at Christ Church from 2014 to 2017, and a Fellow of St Cross from 2011 to 2018.
