Dr. Jérôme Vialard, LOCEAN/IRD, Paris becomes the new Adjunct Scientist of CSIR-NIO
The standing committee has recommended that Dr. Jérôme Vialard, Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD), LOCEAN laboratory (Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, France) becomes the new CSIR-NIO adjunct scientist for a period of 3 years starting from 29 September 2016. Dr. Jérôme Vialard gladly accepted our invitation to serve as CSIR-NIO Adjunct Scientist. Dr. Vialard has long association with CSIR-NIO, in terms of regular visits, and was a visiting scientist at CSIR-NIO for three years during 2007-2010. He has strong collaboration with our scientists and students. Initially trained as a modeler, and working on the El Niño phenomenon in the Pacific, Dr. Vialard has turned his attention to the Indian Ocean over the last 10 years, in particular, studying its response to atmospheric intraseasonal forcing. Dr. Vialard was the PI of the Cirene oceanic cruise in the Southern Tropical Indian Ocean in 2007, that has documented the oceanic response to tropical cyclones, the Madden-Julian Oscillation and the Indian Ocean Dipole. More recently, Dr. Vialard got involved in the study of Indian Ocean biogeochemistry and decadal variability, mainly through joint supervision of PhD students at CSIR-NIO. Dr. Vialard plans to visit CSIR-NIO for 1 to 2 months in 2017, and to give lecture series on Indian Ocean’s dynamical and thermodynamical response to climate variability at intraseasonal, seasonal, interannual and decadal timescales.
