Olivier Aumont

I am a research scientist from IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) working at LOCEAN in Paris. My research interests are in the field of global carbon cycle, marine biogeochemical cycles and marine ecosystems.

More specifically, I am interested in the role that specific physical, biological and chemical processes play in the marine biogeochemical cycles as well as in the transfer of energy along the oceanic trophic food webs. I am the creator and the main developer of the PISCES biogeochemical model that is embedded in several Earth System Models which participate to CMIP (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project) and in different research and operational modeling platforms of the ocean.

Native of France, Olivier Aumont completed a PhD in oceanography at the University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris (1998). He has conducted research at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg (Germany) and Institut Universitaire Européen de la Mer in Brest (France).
