Jérôme is 25 years old and is currently a Phd student in his 2nd year at LEGOS, Toulouse. His research topics are strongly related to the processing of improved coastal multi-satellite altimetric data and the upgrade of dedicated instrumental and environmental corrections in order to better capture physical coastal processes in the North Western Mediterranean sea. This work emphasizes the potential of this data to observe small scale coastal dynamics and will contribute further to the tuning of altimetry assimilation into coastal 3 D hydrodynamical models.
