Climate dynamics, paleoclimate, and climate modelling.
Interdisciplinary research in Earth Sciences focused on understanding the dynamics of climate change on a wide range of timescales, including tectonic, orbital and millennial, by using a hierarchy of climate and ice sheet models combined with marine and terrestrial proxy data.
