Delphine supports the Science team on issues related to climate impacts, vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation in the agriculture sector, with a particular focus on adaptive capacity and food security in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

Prior joining Climate Analytics in 2016, Delphine was a University of Chicago postdoc scholar based at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Institute for Space Studies (NASA GISS) in New York. She has led several analyses to quantify the effects of climate change and benefits of adaptation on global food production using gridded crop modelling tools and has played a coordinating role in the global biophysical modelling activities of the Agricultural Modelling Intercomparison and Improvement Project since 2012 (AgMIP).

Delphine has co-authored a large array of academic publications and has provided scientific support to international organisations, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) and the Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International (CABI).

Delphine holds a PhD in Environmental Sciences from the University of East Anglia (2014) and a Masters in Geography from McGill University (2009). Having relocated to Berlin from New York, Delphine continues to work in close collaboration with the Climate Impacts Research group at NASA GISS and is currently an Adjunct Associate Research Scientist at the Earth Institute Center for Climate Systems Research at Columbia University.
