Senior scientist at Mercator Ocean International - FRANCE
With a background in the use of ocean data assimilation systems in research and operational ocean forecasting, I am now working as a senior scientist in the Operational Oceanography department at Mercator Ocean. My main focus is on observation impact assessment in operational monitoring and forecasting system. Since my PhD, I participated to GODAE and GODAE Ocean View conferences as a place to share experience in the context of Operational Oceanography. I am now co-leading the OceanPredict OS-Eval Task Team where we discuss and promote observation impact assessment studies with operational systems. The task team provides a forum for exchange on method and results of studies focusing on estimation of the benefit of assimilation of past and future satellite and in situ observation in ocean forecasting systems.
