Blending Machine Learning and Physics to improve climate model
Laure Zanna is a Professor in Mathematics and Atmosphere/Ocean Science at the Courant Institute, New York University, USA. Her research focuses on the dynamics of the climate system, especially on studying the influence of the ocean on local and global scales. Her research group aims to advance the fundamental understanding of ocean dynamics and its role in the climate system in order to improve climate change projections. The topics include global and regional sea level rise, ocean decadal predictions, the representation of ocean turbulence in climate models, uncertainty quantification for seasonal predictions, the role of the ocean dynamics in shaping patterns of ocean heat and carbon storage under climate change, and development of physics-aware machine learning models.
