October 2014 to May 2015
Bertrand Delorme was a visiting student at the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change from October 2014 to May 2015. The goal of his research project was to identify the impact of different pattern scaling and bias correction methods on climate data constructed for climate impact analysis. At the time of his visit, Bertrand was studying engineering in Toulouse, France, where he followed a dual curriculum in Applied Mathematics and Computational Climate Science at the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, ENSEEIHT, and the French National School of Meteorology. Bertrand is currently a PhD student in Physical Oceanography in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University. His primary research interest is developing novel numerical and statistical techniques to get a better knowledge of physical processes and improve the accuracy climate models. In his spare time, Bertrand enjoys mountaineering, surfing and rock climbing. These outdoors activities have developed his determination to work on climate related issues.
