Christoph Renkl, Postdoctoral Investigator, joins WHOI’s PO Department. Christoph earned his PhD in Oceanography from Dalhousie University, Halifax NS, Canada. Christoph’s research interests are climate variability, predictability, and change; interactions across scales and sub-systems (e.g., ocean, atmosphere, cryosphere); combining observations with statistical and numerical models. Currently, Christoph is working with Hyodae Seo on better understanding the effects of ocean-atmosphere feedbacks on the California coastal climate using a coupled regional modeling approach. In his spare time, Christoph enjoys spending time outdoors (running, hiking, and camping), dabbling in photography, and baking fresh sourdough bread.
