I completed a PhD at the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France) and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT; Cambridge, USA), studying how the Ocean controls Hurricane intensity and how Hurricane can in turn influence the climate via their interaction with the Ocean.

I founded the Climate Feedback initiative to help the scientific community play a leading role in providing the public with accurate information about climate change and tackling online misinformation.
