Research interests/biography

Merging observational data, comprehensive statistical analysis and numerical modeling to achieve a better understanding of the Arctic Ocean state. That includes understanding the physical mechanisms behind recent changes in the state of the Arctic Ocean to improve our knowledge of the Arctic climate system, including how the large and mesoscale dynamics of the pan-Arctic boundary current and thermohaline processes that occur in the eastern Arctic Ocean affect the state of the Arctic sea ice.
