Liz's research interests are principally in the field of paleoceanography - the study of long-term (thousands of years) climate variability expressed in the ocean. The unifying theme in her research is the interconnection of carbon cycling, ocean circulation, and global climate with a strong focus on the Southern Ocean's influence in glacial and interglacial regimes.
