Research overview

I am a Professor in Biogeochemical Cycles. My interest is in documenting and understanding large-scale (continental to global) interactions and changes of the coupled carbon cycle climate system over time-scales relevant to us today.

The tools include atmospheric and oceanic Greenhouse Gas measurements, and interpretation of such data using 3D fluid dynamics models of atmospheric and oceanic transport and chemistry, as well as ancillary data e.g. from remote sensing.
