  • Coupling between an atmospheric regional model and a regional ocean-sea ice model in Antarctica: analysis of feedback mechanisms in which sea ice is involved. LGGE (Lab. Glaciology & Geophysics Environment), Grenoble, France. PhD (2007)


Nicolas is analyzing the climate model biases over the region of the Maritime Continent. He is developing high-resolution models to understand the role of fine-scale topography and air-sea interactions in that region. Nicolas is now also looking at ocean and atmosphere interfaces with the Antarctic ice sheet, with a particular focus on the last decades/near future variations.
Previously, he has investigated the Australian/Asian monsoon and IOD-ENSO interactions in the CMIP5 models (CCRC, Australia), the interannual variability of tropical cyclogenesis (IRD, New Caledonia), the air-sea interactions under tropical cyclones (LEGI, France), and the interaction between katabatic winds and sea ice in Antarctic polynyas (LGGE, France).
