Fields of interest:
My research uses observations, idealized and state-of-the-art global climate models to understand the dynamics of the large-scale mid-latitude circulation and its role in climate.
In particular, I study how the stratosphere couples with the troposphere via planetary scale waves. The coupling directly impacts the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and the variability of the North-Atlantic jet stream.
I also work on understanding the dynamics of anomalous mid-latitude weather patterns called blocking, persistent high-pressure systems linked to extreme weather such as droughts and cold-snaps, and their representation in global climate models.
