Amelia Shevenell '96, Chief Scientist
Assistant Professor of Geological Oceanography, University of South Florida

Amelia Shevenell '96 received her M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Marine Science from University of California Santa Barbara. Shevenell is chief scientist of the LMG13-11 cruise. Her research focuses on Cenozoic ocean history (temperature, biogeochemistry, circulation), evolution of the southern ocean and Antarctic cryosphere (Cenozoic through present), role of the high-latitude oceans in glacial-interglacial CO2 changes, reconstructing past sea level change and developing and calibrating geochemical proxies for paleoclimatology/paleoceanography. She has published articles in Nature, Science, Nature Geoscience, or Geology, Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Marine Micropaleontology and Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, among others.

Shevenell graduated from Hamilton in 1996 and majored in geosciences. She completed her senior thesis, “Record of Holocene climate change along the Antarctic Peninsula: Evidence from glacial marine sediments, Lallemand Fjord” under advisement of Eugene Domack, the J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Environmental Studies.
