  • Ice sheet modelling
  • Long-term future sea-level rise
  • Paleoclimates/ice sheet history

Currently I am working on a project concerning multi-millennial sea-level rise in Belgium. The main goal is to provide an assessment of sea-level rise due to thermal expansion, melting of glaciers and ice caps and melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheet, using the Earth System Model of Intermediate Complexity LOVECLIM.
