Lisa Orme (Ireland)

Maynooth University

I am currently a Physical Geography lecturer at Maynooth University, Ireland. My research field is palaeoclimatology, so I investigate past changes in temperature and atmospheric circulation. Before moving to Ireland I spent two years at the Norwegian Polar Institute, Tromsø, where I analysed marine sediments to show how sea surface temperature has varied in the Iceland Basin and Southern Ocean over the last 14,000 years. I graduated from the University of Exeter, UK, in 2015 with a PhD in Physical Geography. My research focused on investigating how the storm track over Europe has varied in the past 4000 years, by assessing the amount of windblown sand deposited in coastal peatbogs. My research has shown that past changes in both the atmospheric and ocean circulation have been strongly influenced by changes in the Arctic.
