Marie is a Physical Scientist in the Geology, Minerals, Energy, and Geophysics Science Center in Menlo Park, CA. She works in the Quaternary Paleoenvironmental Research Laboratory. She focuses on multi-proxy studies of late Pleistocene and Holocene sediment cores. Analysis of these sediments allows reconstruction of the ecological and climate history of the region.
Marie Champagne first became interested in paleoclimate research at UC Berkeley. She worked with Dr. Roger Byrne on many projects studying lake sediment records from North America. Since joining USGS in 2016, she has worked on paleoecological studies as a part of David Wahl’s research project.
