Sophie Hines

Assistant Scientist

Sophie joined the Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry Department at WHOI in 2021. She is interested in glacial-interglacial climate change and understanding the role of ocean circulation in major climate transitions using a variety of geochemical proxies in several paleoceanographic archives.

Sophie got her BA in Chemistry from Carleton College in 2011, then completed a PhD in Geochemistry from Caltech in 2018. Before coming to WHOI, she was a Lamont Postdoctoral Fellow at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University.
