Co-Chief Scientist

Tina van de Flierdt is a Professor of Isotope Geochemistry at Imperial College London. She is interested in the marine-terminating sector of Antarctic Ice Sheets during past warm periods. Her research looks to develop new geochemical and isotopic tracers in marine geochemistry, paleoceanography and paleoclimate, with particular focus on radiogenic isotopes. She is co-lead of the MAGIC Isotope group in the Department of Earth Sciences at Imperial College London. She is also a research at the Lamont–Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. Dr van de Flierdt is part of the international Geotraces program and is building a global database of neodymium in the oceans and researching the implications for paleoceanography research.

In 2012 Dr van de Flierdt won a Leverhulme Trust grant to research deep sea corals. She was part of the Natural Environment Research Council project SWEET, Super-Warm Early Eocene Temperatures and climate. She has led several major NERC grants and is a member of the Royal Society's International Exchange Committee. She is an editor of Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.
