Research Interests

I am a PhD student working on probabilistic sea-level projections, both a the global (with Stefan Rahmstorf) and regional (with Malte Meinshausen) scales. My current project consists in developing a model for the outlet glaciers / fjord system of the Greenland ice-sheet, for a better representation of ice/ocean interactions (with Reinhard Calov and Andrey Ganopolski). I am also generally interested in combining climate models with past and present-day observations to reduce uncertainty in future sea-level projections.

I am working in the PRIMAP group, with Stefan Rahmstorf as main supervisor.



I have written the dimarray package on github. It is basically a numpy array with axis name and values, including axis alignment in operations and netCDF I/O.

>>> a = read_nc('', 'temp') # read 'temp' variable in netCDF file

>>> temp = a - a[1986:2005].mean(axis='time')

Try it out!
