Yann Robiou du Pont

PhD student at the Australian-German Climate & Energy College, The University of Melbourne

Yann grew up in France and where he obtained a Master’s in climate, ocean and atmosphere science (University of Paris XI) as well as a Magister in theoretical physics (University of Paris XI). He has various research experience in oceanography (Equatorial Atlantic, coast of Antarctica), hydrology, cosmology and sea ice rheology at Paris VI, Harvard, Berkeley, Oxford, Copenhagen and McGill universities. After a year of field research in Benin and a sailing journey across the Arctic North-West Passage, Yann enrolled in the College in order to model national greenhouse gases emissions scenarios following a combination of different vision of climate justice. The research project is a collaboration between the University of Melbourne and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany.
