Who am I ?
My name is Alexandre Pohl. As a paleoclimate modeler, I try to understand how and why Earth’s climate changed in the past, especially in deep time during pre-Cenozoic times.
I started a Marie Curie Fellowship at University of California Riverside under the guidance of Andy Ridgwell in September 2019. My primary tool is the EcoGENIE Earth System Model, which I use to study the links between marine planktonic communities and oceanic oxygenation during the Phanerozoic.
