I am interested in understanding the variability of the climate system on different time scales and its dependence on the mean climate state. In my PhD work, I have used a coupled climate model to study the mechanisms which control the response of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation to glacial climate forcings. In my current work within the RedMod project, I aim to combine information from climate proxy records and numerical climate simulations to obtain improved climate reconstructions.
