Corinne Le Quéré is Professor of Climate Change Science and Policy at the University of East Anglia and Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. She conducts research on the interactions between climate change and the carbon cycle.
Prof Le Quéré was author of the 3rd, 4th and 5th Assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. She co-leads an effort to publish annual updates of global carbon emissions and their partitioning among the atmosphere, land and oceans. These 'Global Carbon Budget' and 'Global Carbon Atlas' are used to support research and policy on climate change. She is a member of the Scientific Committee of the new international initiative 'Future Earth'.
Prof Le Quéré is originally from Canada. She completed a Ph.D. in oceanography in University Paris VI (1999), an M.S. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from McGill University and a B.Sc. in physics from University of Montréal. She has conducted research at Princeton University in the United States and at the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Germany.
