Born in France, I studied my Bachelor and Master of Science in Switzerland, and I was given my PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) in Northern Germany at the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmoltz Center for Polar and Marine research, and at the university of Bremen. I am now working as PostDoc Researcher at McGill university, in the departement of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciencs.

I’m working on high resolution sea ice modeling for climate simulations. As we increased the resolution of the climate models, we now have the power to resolve more features in the sea ice cover, like leads (fracture lines) and large ice floes. The question is now to know if what we are modeling is correct compared to the observations.

I am financed and member of the International Research Training Group ArcTrain, a collaboration between several institutes in Germany and Canada. More information are available on our project website.


I’m interested in sharing knowledge to the public about climate change and the impact of human activities on the polar region. You can find me on twitter : @sea_ice_bear, and I am one of the manager and occasionnaly writer of the ArcTrain blog and the ArcTrain twitter account @IRTG_ArcTrain
