My research interests are, among other things, in Climate Variability, Climate Dynamics, Climate Modelling, Ocean-Atmosphere interactions, Hydrology, and the Climate of the Past. Furthermore I am curious about the Philosophy of Science, the History of Climate Science, Science Communication, Open Access, and Science Management.
A list of my publications is available here.
