Research interests

My research focuses on sea ice physics, variability and forecast. I also look at the interactions between sea ice and the other components of the climate system, with a particular interest on the Arctic region. I have expertise in both sea ice modelling and observations statistical analysis, as well as some experience in data assimilation.

I initiated and currently lead the development of the next generation sea ice model neXtSIM. In parallel, I have been working on issues related to sea ice drift, freeboard, thickness and lead fraction satellite retrievals. Before, I have been working on the multi-scale characterization of sea ice and earth crust dynamics and on the modelling of sea ice age and types in the MITgcm coupled ice-ocean model.
