Yvan Romé


I am a postgraduate researcher working with Dr. Ruza Ivanovic and Dr. Lauren Gregoire in the Priestley Bulding of the main university campus.

My project is financed by the NERC Panorama DTP. I work at the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science, the Priestley International Centre for Climate and the Earth Surface Science Institute. I am a member of the Climate-Ice group, the Physical Climate Change Group, Paleo@Leeds and the Quaternary Group at the University.

Research interests

I am interestid in past climate modelling, and in particular in ice-ocean interactions. My project aims to understand the chain of events which took place during the last deglaciation (21 kya – 11 kya) using general circulation climate models. To do so, I study abrupt climate changes in the broader context of the last glacial period and try to apply the results to the early stage of the last deglaciation. Our goal is to propose a new reconstruction of the period by the end of the PhD using meltwater forcing derived from ice-sheet reconstruction.

I am also interested in the climate dynamics of the abrupt climate changes and ice sheet modelling.
