Emmanuel

Emmanuel Vincent

Founder & Project Lead

Emmanuel completed a PhD at the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France) and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT; Cambridge, USA), studying how the Ocean controls Hurricane intensity and how Hurricane can in turn influence the climate via their interaction with the Ocean.
He joined the University of California, Merced, to help the scientific community play a leading role in providing the public with accurate information about climate change.
