I am an oceanographer interested in the variation of ocean properties at seasonal to inter annual timescale, mainly in the Southern Ocean. My main body of work focuses on decomposing hydrographic profiles into modes, which has applications for water masses identification and frontal structure detection. I also took part in the calibration of profiles sampled by animal-borne CTD tags which are the main source of data in the polar regions.

Here is a list of my publications :
