Kévin Fourteau

I have a background in general Physics and decided to specialize in cryopsheric sciences for the end of my Master. Up to now my work revolved around the modeling of glacier creep, the trapping of atmospheric gases in polar ice and the implication for ice core interpretation, and the physical properties of the snow material.

More precisely, during my stays as a post-doctorate researcher at CEN and SLF (Davos, Switzerland) I have worked on estimating the thermodynamical and mechanical properties of snow, based on its microstructure and the physics at play at the microscopic scale.

My role in the IVORI project is to provide physics-based equations and parametrizations to model the evolution of snowpacks, and to explore state-of-the-art techniques for their implementation in a numerical model.
