Dr. Albert Osso

Visiting Fellow

I am a postdoc researcher for NCAS-Climate, at the . My current work is focused on understanding the role of air-sea interactions in shaping the summer climate of Europe. I obtained my PhD degree at the University of Barcelona on July 2014, analyzing the evolution of the stratospheric ozone content, stratospheric temperatures and the Brewer Dobson Circulation during the last decades.

My research interests lie on:

Global climate variability, predictability and change.
Troposphere-stratosphere coupling.
Tropical Cyclone variability.

Research Projects:

Summer: Testing Influences and Mechanisms for Europe (SummerTIME).

Other interests:

Scientific communication and policy advice.
Alpinism and anything related with mountains.
