Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ)
Hey! I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) in Oostende. I did my PhD at Sorbonne Université (LOCEAN, Paris) on the mechanisms controlling anthropogenic CO2 uptake and acidification in the North Atlantic and Southern Oceans. I was lucky enough to be able to join several oceanographic cruises around the French sub-Antarctic islands (do you know Kerguelen Island?) where I had my first adventures at very high southern latitudes.
In my current project, I investigate the greenhouse gases flux (CO2, CH4, N2O) in the Arctic Ocean (especially in the Greenlandic Fjord systems) between ocean and atmosphere, and between ice and atmosphere.
I really enjoy communicating about climate change, even in faraway polar regions like the Arctic and Antarctic environments. So, joining the APECS-Belgium team is a good way of continuing to pass on my knowledge!
