Research Interests

Lizzie’s research interests include developing long term records of coastal climate extremes (e.g., tropical cyclones, nor’easters) using sediment cores and global climate models (GCMs) and exploring the links between climate change (e.g., sea level rise, drought, rainfall) and coastal processes and ecosystems.
