  • Research unit "Biogeochemical Modelling"


My research focuses on low oxygen regions, located at the eastern tropical boundaries of the ocean basins. Using NEMO-NPZD, a high resolution coupled biogeochemical - ocean circulation model, my aims are to better quantify the mechanisms causing their formation (respiration vs circulation) and to assess their variability and future evolution at decadal time scale. I am also generally interested in biogeochemical models evaluation and validation.
