Elise obtained her bachelor’s degree in Physics at Université de Montréal in 2016. She then obtained her Master’s degree in Climate physics at Geomar, in Germany, where she took part in an oversea expedition on a research vessel across the equatorial Atlantic ocean. Her master’s thesis focused on ocean modelling and submesoscale dynamics. She is now pursuing a PhD in the Ocean science and engineering program, working with coupled ocean-atmosphere models, and interdisciplinary marine sciences. She hopes that her research can have a broader impact and benefit to society. In her freetime, she loves cooking italian food, play guitar, go camping and rock climbing.
