The Bowdoin Earth and Oceanographic Science Department recently announced the hire of Michele LaVigne as the department's newest tenure track professor. This year, she taught a number of Biogeochemistry classes at Bowdoin while Professor Phil Camill was on sabbatical, and will take on a new set of classes next year upon his return. Michele received her Bachelor's Degree from Hampshire College in Environmental Chemistry/Geology and a Ph.D in Oceanography from Rutgers University in New Jersey.
Michele defines herself as a marine biogeochemist and paleoceanographer with an interest in rapid climate change. Her research focuses on the effects of climate change on biogeochemical cycling of nutrients and ocean acidification. The EOS Department is excited for the new perspective and energy she will bring to her classes and research.
