Tom Chalk

CNRS research scientist / CEREGE

Salut, I’m Tom, a researcher working for the CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research), based at CEREGE. I am an isotope geochemist (interested in the tiny variations in mass of chemical elements), specialising in boron, the 5th element. I have a PhD from National Oceanography Centre Southampton, and have been a postdoctoral researcher in the USA (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute), UK (University of Southampton) and Norway (Arctic University of Tromsø). Since 2022, I’ve lived in France and tried to speak French. I am interested in the natural history and unnatural future of Earth’s atmospheric and oceanic carbon dioxide, and the sensitivity of ice and oceans to climate change. I am an associate editor for Paleoceanography and Paleoclimate and the Principal Investigator of the ERC project ForCry (freezing tiny samples of CaCO3 in order to analyse them by laser ablation). When not researching I  Besides doing research, I like to play board games, run up mountains, and veganise recipes (and to party).
