I am a PhD Student / Early-Stage Researcher (ESR) at the LSCE (Laboratoire des sciences du climat et de l’environnement, France) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium). My PhD is part of the iEU Marie Curie Innovative Training Network C-Cascades.
My research focuses on Ocean Biogeochemistry and its influence on climate change. For my work, I mostly use numerical models, like NEMO-PISCES. During my PhD I am studying the effects of riverine delivery of nutrients and carbon on the biogeochemistry of the Arctic Ocean under future climate change (Project Description).
My two big projects during my studies focussed on the North Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation in Climate Models at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (UK) and the understanding of phytoplankton blooms in the Southern Ocean using nested models at LOCEAN in Paris as part of my Masters at Ecole Polytechnique (France)
