Brice Noël is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research Utrecht (IMAU). He graduated from the University of Liège (Belgium) with a degree in climatology in 2013. He then completed a PhD at Utrecht University (Netherlands) in 2018 where he has been working since. He recently obtained two research grants (Veni and F.R.S.-F.N.R.S.) to pursue his forthcoming projects.
His main interest focuses on modelling the climate of polar regions using the regional climate model RACMO2. More specifically, he studies the present-day and future surface mass balance -difference between winter snowfall accumulation and meltwater runoff in summer- of the Greenland ice sheet and surrounding Arctic glaciers, including the Canadian Arctic, Iceland and Svalbard. His current research aims at identifying tipping points in the Arctic climate system.
