MC Is a research scientist with the National Fund of Scientific Research, and professor at the Université catholique de Louvain. He has been working on climate dynamics and palaeoclimates since 1998, and specialised in modelling the slow dyanimcs of the climate complex system. His main interest is to use data and models jointly to infer information on mechanisms of climate change. The approach is founded on methods of statistical inference that can be used with a hierarchy of climate models, from simple dynamical systems to general circulation models. This reseach is, among others, funded by the European Research Council through a project entitled Integrating Theory and Observations over the Pleistocene (ITOP). He teaches meteorology and climate system physics at the Universite catholique de Louvain and currently manages a team of 2 post-docs and 2 PhD students.
