Associate Professor, Oceans and Climate at Delft University of Technology
Caroline Katsman is Associate Professor in Physical Oceanography in the Environmental Fluidmechanics section of the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. Her research focuses on the large-scale ocean circulation and its role for climate. In 2014, she received a personal mid-career grant (NWO-VIDI grant) to study how ocean eddies govern the response of the ocean circulation to high-latitude climate change. Before coming to Delft she worked at KNMI (the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute) as a climate researcher. Besides her scientific work on ocean warming and future sea level change, she advised the Dutch government on coastal defence policy strategies.
