Deborah Verfaille

Deborah is a postdoc working in UCLouvain. Her main research interest is about glacier-climate interactions in Antarctica and the subantarctic. She’s currently working in the PARAMOUR project, which aims at  revealing fundamental drivers of climate variability and assessing the predictability in high-latitudes by using coupled regional climate models in both hemispheres. She’s also involved in different studies about glacier-climate interactions in the subantarctic Kerguelen Islands, the main topic of her PhD (2011-2014). In 2011-2012 and 2013, she took part in two field campaigns to the Kerguelen Islands, to install and maintain a glaciological and meteorological network on the archipelago’s main ice cap, the Cook Ice Cap, as well as the sampling of moraines for cosmogenic dating.
