The study of climate can be regarded as the characterisation of the long-term evolution of weather. Climate is not static, but changes according to variation in the fluxes of energy, matter and momentum between its different components. These exchanges take place over very different spatial and temporal scales: from seconds to millions of years, and from microns to thousand kilometres. Thus, climate research is a complex topic that poses a multidisciplinary challenge.
As a physicist, I try to tackle this problem through the statistical analysis of the output of computational models. In particular, my activities focus on the use of Regional Climate Models to gain insight in the climate evolution at different time scales: from the last two millennia to climate change projections. Currently I hold a postdoc position at the Department of Physics of the University of Murcia (Spain), where I study extreme events in the past, present and future through the analysis of high-resolution simulations.
