Earth System Analyis – Research Domain I

As a PostDoc here at PIK, I was working on the energy and surface mass balance of the Greenland Ice-Sheet together with Andrey Ganopolski. We developed a physically-based modelling approach that can be applied to a broad range of time scales and climate change scenarios (project description). Co-workers: Alex Robinson and Reinhard Calov.

Since February I'm working at Climate Analytics in Berlin. I'm also a guest scientist here at PIK.

Research Interests

  • Surface mass balance of Greenland Ice Sheet
  • Physical properties of snow: compaction, metamorphosis, melting/refreezing, albedo
  • Palaeoclimate modelling, numerical climate modelling
  • Large-scale ocean circulation
  • Energy Balance Models and heat transports
  • Internal climate variability, ocean–atmosphere interactions
  • Pacific climate variability: ENSO, PDO
