This researcher or research organisation has expressed interest in the following areas of EU Research Partnerships:

Climate Change

Interests indicated in the Climate Change Joint Programming Initiative

 Moving towards Reliable Decadal Climate Predictions

Relevant information in relation to Participation relevant experts groups

I provided research and development of regional coupled ocean-atmosphere climate change models that include oceanic biogeochemical cycles and atmospheric composition during my postdoctoral contract at National University of Ireland Galway. The project was funded by the Higher Education Authority. I worked closely with the NUIG Centre for Climate & Air Pollution Studies and Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology in Germany on research leading to integration of the atmospheric and ocean models. This research resulted in two papers in the Continental Shelf Research - a high impact factor journal in the field, and one paper in the proceedings from the 34th World Congress of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research.
