I’m an Oceanographer specialised in ocean climate monitoring living and working actually at Mercator Ocean in Toulouse, France and member of the European Academy of Science
Research interest: Understanding the role of the ocean – and its interaction within – in the Earth’s climate system, its changes and underlying processes involved, and how they can be best observed (in situ, remote sensing), monitored (reanalyses and operational systems) and estimated (analyses approaches, ocean climate indicator development) in favor of a sustainable future development.
