About Me

I am a doctor in physical oceanography, and I am now working as a postdoc within the SASIP project project in Grenoble, France.

I pursued my Ph.D. studies at the Department of Marine Sciences, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, supervised by Fabien Roquet. My doctoral research investigated the factors influencing the upper ocean stratification, particularly near the polar transition zones between the alpha and beta oceans. Throughout my academic journey, I have actively contributed to teaching physical oceanography courses at the University of Gothenburg. I believe that science should be open and reproducible, and I am a full advocate of FOSS. Therefore, I have been an exercise leader at one CodeRefinery workshop, and I participate in open-source initiatives, contributing to Python packages like xnemogcm, xgcm, and gsw-xarray. Beyond academia, I have a professional diploma in carpentry, I play the guitar, and I love mountains.
