My research focuses on the statistical analysis of extreme precipitation events at midlatitudes.

My PhD consists in :
- Verification of precipitation events in ERA-5 (reanalysis dataset by the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts),
- Spatial analysis of extreme behavior of precipitation in Europe, with ERA-5 data,
- Assessment of Seasonal-to-Subseasonal hindcast in terms of precipitation extremes, with a focus on temporal clustering.
