Personal Statement

I am interested in the role of the atmosphere and ocean in the climate system:

How climate is changing through carbon emissions?
What happens when net zero is reached?
How the ocean responds to changes in atmospheric forcing?
How does ocean circulation affect the ocean carbon sink?
