oceanography (physical, chemical, biological), large scale climate dynamics, carbon cycle, atmosphere-ocean and land-ocean interactions, ocean ecology, climate impacts, Southern Ocean dynamics.

Description of Scientific Projects

I have broad interests in climate sciences, and generally have a theoretical approach/bent in my research. I run and analyze global climate models, but also smaller models (e.g. box models for ocean-atmosphere). I have worked with satellite data products for detecting changes in ocean dynamics and ecology from space. Examples of theory/modeling/data-analysis topics I would like to work on with a postdoc are: • The role of the oceans (particularly Southern Ocean) in the global climate; global atmosphere-ocean teleconnections linking high and low latitudes. • Impacts of a changing hydrology on the oceans • The response of global ocean physics, carbon and oxygen cycles to climate change, including feedbacks. Developing theories on what controls the oceanic sink for atmospheric CO2 on various timescales. • Ocean ecology: past and future responses to a changing physical climate. Biological-physical interactions in the ocean. Phytoplankton functional groups from space. • Including evolutionary concepts and functional traits into ecological models and coupling them to comprehensive global climate models. • Climate Impacts, various topics (e.g.: ecosystem/population/health/economic impacts of climate change, coastal impacts, etc.)
