SLS Seminar: Sophie Hines (Caltech)
About the Speaker
Sophie Hines is a paleoceanographer interested in glacial-interglacial climate change and the role of the ocean in major climate transitions. She is working with Jess Adkins, John Eiler, and Andrew Thompson as a graduate student at Caltech. During her PhD, she has been combining precise geochemical measurements on fossil deep-sea corals with simple physical models of the ocean in order to understand changes in ocean circulation in the past.
About the Series
The Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Sack Lunch Seminar Series is an informal seminar series within PAOC that focuses on more specialized topics than the PAOC Colloquium. Seminar topics include all research concerning the science of atmosphere, ocean and climate. The seminars usually take place on Wednesdays from 12-1pm in 54-915. The presentations are either given by an invited speaker or by a member of PAOC and can focus on new research or discussion of a paper of particular interest.
