Scientific Interests

My scientific interest encompass mainly the climate dynamics. I investigate the climate sensitivity to carbon dioxide, but I am also interested in palaeoclimatology.

My main research questions are:

  1. How the temperature of the planet responds to the radiative forcing through the feedback mechanisms?
  2. Which is the role of atmospheric and oceanic circulation in the feedback mechanisms and the energy budget?
  3. How the spatio-temporal pattern of the surface warming affects the feedback mechanisms?
  4. Where is the origin of such pattern?
  5. Is there a connection between the spatio-temporal pattern and the oceanic circulation?

More research questions that I would like to answer are related to the Milancović Cycles and what is the real pacemaker of Earth's climate in the long time scales.
