Fields of work

Evaluation of the Rossby Centre regional climate model and analysis of climate change in simulations performed within the international CORDEX project. Assessing uncertainties in climate change projections and providing ensemble based probabilistic scenarios is another field of interest.

Research Interests

  • To what extent can climate models reproduce the observed climate?
  • How can ensembles of climate projections be used to illustrate uncertainties and robustness in future climate change?
  • How can climate scenarios be used to provide useful climate services?

Special competences

Analysis of climate model output, comparison between models and observations.
