I am a polar physical oceanographer. My research centres around understanding variability and change in Arctic Ocean dynamics, and its connections to the global ocean circulation and climate, using both numerical models of all level of complexity and observations. I've received my PhD in 2010 from the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (Brest, France), working on the freshwater export from the Arctic to the North Atlantic. Then I obtained a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington (Seattle) to work on the ability of the current observations system to properly capture the variations and changes of water masses in the Arctic Basin, before moving to the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford (UK) in 2013 as a research associate. Since 2015, I am an IFREMER research scientist at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie Physique et Spatiale in Brest, France.
