Laure is a Ph.D. student in the department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University. Her thesis focuses on the non-normal dynamics of the thermohaline circulation in present-day climate. More specifically, she combines numerical models and analytical tools in order to investigate how small perturbations could lead to a large transient amplification of the thermohaline circulation due to its non-normal dynamics.
