The fellow was seconded to Earth System Physics section at UNESCO – Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Italy, where she was trained on climate data analysis under the supervision of Prof. Filippo Giorgi. During this 3-month secondment (February – May 2019), the fellow has been familiarised with the climate data analysis tools and methods. She has been analysing both climate observations (e.g. Alpine precipitation grid dataset EURO4M-APGD, HISTALP, E-OBS gridded dataset) and climate projections data (e.g. CORDEX regional climate model simulations for the European domain) with the aim to reconstruct past variations and make future projections of the equilibrium line altitude of glaciers in the European Alps.
