LaVigne's research focuses on marine biogeochemistry and paleoceanography across ocean regions and timescales. Overarching themes in LaVigne's work include how global climate change has affected the biogeochemical cycling of ocean nutrients and carbon over the past several centuries—and how global warming will impact ocean acidification and marine biological response in the future. LaVigne mentors students from all backgrounds through research and teaching at Bowdoin College and engages in science policy with the American Geophysical Union's Science Policy and Government Relations team.
