Gesa A. Weyhenmeyer (born 1969) is a Swedish limnologist who is working as a professor and distinguished teacher at Uppsala University in Sweden.[1][2] She is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences[3] and known for her research on understanding lake ecosystems in a changing global environment. Her research requires a holistic and global perspective for which she collaborates with members of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON).[4] In addition to GLEON, Weyhenmeyer is strongly engaged in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climatic Change (IPCC), both as reviewer and contributing author[5]

Weyhenmeyer communicates research to the general public. In 2016, she performed a citizen scientist project with the involvement of nearly 3,500 schoolchildren. The results of the project led to a new climate change related scientific discovery[6] which was recognized by a large variety of national and international media[7][8][9]
