Born: 1968

Interests: Physics of Climate Changes

My research activity is related to several topics:
- interannual to millennial climate variability
- separation of anthropogenically forced from natural climate variability
- using proxy records to reconstruct and understand climate variability
- climate-economics interactions.

ResearcherID: G-1370-2010
