- Sebastien DenvilWP14 leaderInstitut Pierre-Simon Laplace (IPSL) – CNRS, FranceSebastien DenvilWP14 leader
Sebastien’s expertise covers: large scale climate cimulations (climate models use quantitative methods to simulate the interactions of the atmosphere, oceans, land surface, and ice), scientific workflow and analysis (those large scale climate model needs parallel computing architecture together with HPC and Big Data infrastructure to provide high-end numerical simulations), and complex and voluminous data and metadata management and analysis (international collaborations are needed to create open-source software and infrastructure that powers the study of climate science.
