– a physical oceanographer;
– most interested in polar and/or deep water masses;
– a Marie Curie research fellow at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden;
– a regular author on the EGU Cryosphere Division blog;
– in the CLIVAR/CliC Northern Ocean Regional Panel;
– French (in case you wondered).
I am involved in a variety of projects about the North Atlantic Deep Water, from the variability of its formation in the Labrador Sea to its interaction with sea ice and Greenland marine-terminated glaciers. My favourite tools are global climate models, but I also work with in-situ measurements, including some that I myself collect at sea. I am currently supervising two Master’s students and co-supervising one PhD student from Chalmers University of Technology.
I finished my PhD at the University of East Anglia (UK) in March 2015 where I was working on a CASE studentship with the UK Met Office. I investigated how the current generation of climate models represent Antarctic Bottom Water, and what their biases mean for the reliability of sea level rise projections.
I then reworked briefly with the LOCEAN (France) to finish a paper from my Master’s degree before moving to Gothenburg.
You can find the full text of my publications on this website and on my ResearchGate profile.
Otherwise, I genuinely enjoy writing and outreach. I am notably a regular author for the EGU blog of the Cryospheric division, and when at sea, I blog and post pictures on Polarfever. And I do water tank demonstrations in and around Gothenburg when I can.
