Post Doctoral Researcher

Laraghbryan House


André is a Meteorologist working since his PhD at Oceanographic Institutions in Germany (University of Hamburg) and the UK (NOC Liverpool). His expertise is in statistics in Earth- and Geo-science, having worked and published among other in data quality assurance and publication, sea-level research and long-term prediction.

At Maynooth University he investigates in the project A4 the decadal predictability in and around Ireland. With new innovative statistical approaches, physical understanding of the ocean and the atmosphere and an open mind for interdisciplinary work, he works with models and observations to gain a better understanding of the Earth System in past, present and future.
