Flavio Lehner

Dr. Flavio Lehner is a postdoctoral researcher at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, USA. Flavio is researching global and regional climate variability and change on decadal to interannual time scales with a focus on quantifying uncertainties in our understanding of past, current, and future climate change. Combining climate model simulations with observational evidence, he has published scientific papers on atmospheric circulation, ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interactions, carbon cycle response to climate change, and human exposure to changes in record-breaking summer temperatures. In 2009, he worked as a student assistant on a cruise to the Fram Strait aboard the german icebreaker Polarstern, which was his first encounter with polar bears in the wild.
