Amélie SIMON received her PhD degree from Ecole Centrale de Lyon (France) in Fluid Dynamics on shallow-water models. With the motivation to take part in climate research, Amélie SIMON became a Postdoctoral Researcher at LOCEAN-IPSL (Paris, France). She investigated the role of sea-ice on ocean and climate dynamics for scales ranging from interannual to thousands of years. Recently, Amélie joined the Institute Dom Luiz (IDL), Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon as a Postdoctoral Researcher where she continues to work on ocean-atmosphere interactions in the North Atlantic but with a particular focus on extreme events.

Amélie SIMON has participated in several international projects (Blue-Action, Archange, Gotham, Roadmap). She also won a project grant to study the troposphere-stratosphere interactions in the Arctic (ROQBAR project, 5 collaborators). Besides, she embarked on two oceanographic cruises (MOOSE-GE in 2018 (2 weeks) and PIRATA in 2021 (2 months)) and was involved in outreach climate events (Festival of Science, Train du Climat, French Science Academia…).
