PAGES welcomes new SO

sarah eggleston smallPAGES is pleased to welcome our new Science Officer Sarah Eggleston to the International Project Office (IPO) in Bern, Switzerland.

Eggleston has taken over from Lucien von Gunten, who worked with PAGES for eight years.

Among her many roles, Eggleston will be responsible for the coordination of working groups and other aspects of PAGES' science agenda, as well as editing the Past Global Changes Magazine.

She is most looking forward to returning to paleoclimatology after postdoc experiences in Barcelona. "One reason I'm really excited to join PAGES is because after I was working in the lab during my PhD, I got to do some modeling work with Eric Galbraith", Eggleston said.

"Now I've seen different aspects, and interacted with different parts, of the community and I'm excited to expand my knowledge of this network.

"I'm also really excited to work on the magazine, to stay in touch with paleoclimatology and to maintain a role as an instigator of science, even though I'm no longer conducting my own research."

Eggleston was most recently at Empa in Zürich, Switzerland, studying isotopes of greenhouse gases (methane, nitrous oxide) and did her PhD at the University of Bern from 2011-2015, measuring isotopes of carbon dioxide in ice cores with Hubertus Fischer's group at the Physics Department.
