Research interests

My main interest lies with studying the role of the continental ice sheets (Greenland, Antarctica, Northern Hemisphere) in the Earth system.

Current status

I am a senior researcher in the Paleo Modeling and Analysis (PalMA) group at the Complutense University of Madrid in the Department of Earth Science and Astrophysics.

I am also a guest scientist at PIK, collaborating with Andrey Ganopolski, Reinhard Calov, Stefan Rahmstorf, Dim Coumou and Anders Levermann, among others.

PhD work

Working with Andrey Ganopolski and Reinhard Calov, I developed a simple regional energy-moisture balance model (REMBO) to produce realistic climate forcing and feedbacks over Greenland, given that warming in the future could drastically change the regional distribution of temperature and precipitation.

My work was funded by the Marie Curie 6th Framework Programme and was a part of the Network for Ice sheet and Climate Interactions (NICE).
