Lucas Schmutz is a PhD student at the Institute of Earth Surface Dynamics (IDYST) at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Under the supervision of Professor Gregoire Mariethoz, Lucas aims to enhance the reliability of climate projections by accounting for the local performance of global circulation models. His work focuses on novel statistical approaches to combine multiple models, aiming to preserve their spatial characteristics and the dependencies between variables. These innovations aim to produce more physically realistic and less biased climate projections, informing better local adaptation and mitigation strategies.
