Isabel Montañez is a sedimentary geochemist and paleoclimatologist whose research focuses on reconstructing past global and regional climates, in particular those during warming and major climate transition. Her approach is interdisciplinary, integrating physical, biologic, and chemical proxies of environmental and ecosystem parameters with multiple scales of numeric modeling to study Earth system processes and their interactions during climate and ecosystem perturbation.
