This page is organised as follow: Current positions; Education; Previous positions; Funded research grants (see also the Research tab); Field work experience; Other. My Publications, Presentations, Supervision/Teaching, and Outreach activities are detailed on separate pages.
In short, I investigate global deep waters, from the variability of their formation at high latitudes to their interaction with sea ice and floating glaciers. To do so, I combine global climate model output, remote sensing data, and in-situ measurements, including some that I myself collect at sea. I am currently the main supervisor of one PhD student and co-supervisor of another, I just welcomed my first post-doc and am about to hire a second one.
