Yvan Romé


I am a paleo-climate scientist who joined the School of Earth and Environment of the University of Leeds in October 2019 as a postgraduate researcher with Dr. Ruza Ivanovic and Dr. Lauren Gregoire.

I did most of my undergraduate curriculum in France studying Engineering, Theoretical Physics, Computer Science and Mathematics in Ecole Centrale Supelec (former Ecole Centrale Paris) and Paris-Sud University. I realised my Master’s project in Bergen, Norway, working on Ocean Ice interplay modelling during Marine Isotope Stage 3 with Prof. Kerim Hestnes Nisancioglu and Dr. Chuncheng Guo.

For a talk or a cup of tea feel free to me in the PGR office on level 11 of the Priestley Building =) !

Research interests

My research aims to model of ice and ocean processes in the North Atlantic during the Lat Ice Age. In particular, I am interested on the interplay between the Atlantic Overturning Meridional Circulation, sea ice and ice sheets during abrupt climate changes. My PhD project focuses on the understanding the chain of event that happened in this area from the Last Glacial Maximum to the Last Deglaciation. I am also interested in climate model development and statistical methods.

My project is financed by the NERC Panorama DTP and hosted by the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science. I am a member of the Climate-Ice group, the Physical Climate Change Group, Paleo@Leeds and the Quaternary Group.
