Research Interests

Research project: FOOTPRINTS WP2:

  • What happens when CO2 emissions stop?
  • How much warming is already committed to the climate?
  • Which earth system processes are important after emissions stop?
  • How (un)certain are the climate models?

  • statistics
  • parameter estimation
  • machine learning
