Overview

Andre is working on the developments in the UK's leading land surface model (JULES), which forms the land part of the Met Office climate models. He specialises in terrestrial carbon and nutrient dynamics. During his research in C-CASCADES project, he developed an extension to the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) which includes representation of processes related to DOC in soil and its transport out of the soil to the river system (JULES-DOCM).

He is currently enrolled in the QUINTUS project, a £3.7m NERC funded research project, led by the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) to include representation of N and P in the JULES model. The new developments include the N and P fluxes within vegetation and soil components as well as specification of pools and processes related to N and P cycling within soil column. He obtained his Ph.D. from Exeter University in 2019, where he studied earth system modelling.

Qualifications

Ph.D. Mathematics, University of Exeter - Representation of Dissolved Organic Carbon in Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES - DOCM).
