About Céline Heuzé

I am docent and Associate Senior Lecturer in climatology, fascinated by global deep water masses and their role in the climate system. In particular, I study the interactions between deep ocean, sea ice / glaciers, and atmosphere, mostly in the Arctic. To do so, I use in-situ observations, climate models, and ocean remote sensing.

Latest news: I am to receive the 2022 Ocean Science division Outstanding Early Career Scientist award of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).


I obtained my PhD in physical oceanography in 2015 from the University of East Anglia (UK), and immediately after moved to Sweden as a VINNMER / Marie Curie Incoming Fellow.

My three main projects at the moment are:

  • Warming of Arctic deep waters, using in-situ observations and climate models (Swedish Research Council grant 2018-03859). PhD student Salar Karam (main supervisor). I am co-lead of MOSAiC team Ocean (50+ people) och physical oceanography PI for the Swedish contribution to the Synoptic Arctic Survey, two very large international expeditions to the Arctic.
  • Dynamics of the Antarctic sea ice, from satellites (Swedish National Space Agency grant 164/18). Postdoc Lu Zhou (main supervisor); PhD student Martin Mohrmann (co-supervisor).
  • Sea level variability and forecast over the North Atlantic - North Sea region, using in-situ and satellite measurements and AI (FORMAS grant 2020-00982). Postdoc Lea Poropat (main supervisor).

I have been teaching the following courses since moving to the Earth Sciences department in October 2018:

  • Introduction to Earth Sciences (GV1410; I am course responsible for half of it), 1st year bachelor;
  • Advanced climate data analysis (GVN370; I am course responsible), new 3rd year bachelor course that I created, starting in spring 2021;
  • Earth system science (GV0340), 3rd year bachelor;
  • Climate Modelling (GVN465; I am course responsible), master level;
  • The Arctic in a changing climate, PhD level;
  • Upcoming course on Big Data and Deep Learning for Climate Science, PhD level.
