    I have been working since November, 2005, as a research hydrometeorologist at the Centre National de Recherches Meteorologiques (National Center for Meteorological Research: CNRM/GMME/MOSAYC) which is a part of Meteo France in Toulouse, France. I am employed by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (National Center for Scientific Research: (CNRS) and am a part of the CNRS group GAME at Meteo-France/CNRM. My affilation is:

Centre National de Recherches Meteorologiques
(National Center for Meteorological Research)

Research Interests

    My research mainly focuses on land-atmosphere feedbacks, the modeling of continental surface processes and hydrometeorology. I spend a good deal of my time working on improving the representation of such processes in terms of the parameterizations for application in meteorological (mesoscale, NWP and GCMs) and hydrology models. I have also spent considerable effort developing and evaluating soil and snowpack processes.

    I am currently working on the The African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analysis (Analyses Multidisciplinaires de la Mousson Africaine: AMMA) project. It is an international project with the goal of improving the knowledge and understanding of the West African Monsoon (WAM) and its variability with an emphasis on daily to inter-annual time scales. AMMA is motivated by an interest in fundamental scientific issues and by the societal need for improved prediction of the WAM and its impact on west African nations. In particular, I'm coordinating the AMMA Land surface Model Intercomparison Project (ALMIP) project, for which there will be a detailed examination of the ability of current state of the art land surface models to simulate certain processes relevant to the African Monsoon. Below is a figure of the study domain. I am also a member of the AMMA International Scientific Steering Committee (AMMA ISSC).

ALMIP study zone over western Africa. Topography is shaded (in meters). For more information, see the ALMIP webpage.

    I am a member of the Scientific Definition Team (SDT) for the SWOT (Surface Water Ocean Topography) mission. This is a joint CNES-NASA poject. The SWOT mission will use altimetry in order to provide elevation measurements over the worlds oceans and freshwater bodies. Launch is currently slated for 2020. Scientific presentations can be accessed at the NASA JPL website.

    I am currently co-chair of the Atmosphere System Study GLASS Panel. The Global Land Atmosphere System Study (GLASS) is a scientific panel of the Global Energy and Water EXchanges (GEWEX), a core project within the World Climate Research Programme (WAMME2 Working Group. In Phase-II, CEOP Inter-Monsoon Model Study (CIMS) will continue the original focus but with increased efforts on aerosol interactions and possible anthrogenic (land-use and vegetation) feedbacks.

    Member of the SURFEX Steering Committee. SURFEX (Surface externalized) is a numerical code or platform which simulates the evolution of surface variables and the corresponding atmosphere/surface fluxes. It can be used either "off-line" (i.e. forced by observed, analysed or idealized data, without feedbacks with the atmosphere ) or "in-line" (i.e. as a module which is fully coupled with an atmospheric model). It contains various scientific submodels and options within the four main surface types (bare soil/vegetation, urbanized areas, inland water and sea/ocean), which allows easy implementation and testing of scientific improvements of these models. The SURFEX code is maintained by CNRM (National Centre for Meteorological Research)/GMME (Mesoscale Group), Meteo-France, and is available to the ALADIN, HIRLAM and MesoNH consortia. It is also accessible to the scientific community for research purposes.


    I have spent considerable time on research and development concerning the ISBA land surface scheme at CNRM. I have also examined the performance of other land surface schemes through the international Rhone-AGGregation project which I ran at CNRM. I worked from 2003-2004 at the Centres d'Etudes Spatiales de la Biosphere (Center for the Study of the Biosphere from Space: CESBIO) in Toulouse. I was at CNRM from 1998-2003, and at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA-GSFC) from 1992-1997, where I was employed by Science Systems and Applications Inc. (SSAI). I attended Florida State University (meteorology from 1988-1992, Northern Illinois University (meteorology) from 1987-1988, and the University of Louisville from 1986-1987. I received my PhD in hydrometeorology from Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse, France, (1998-2000).
