E.J.V. (Emma) Smolders

PhD Candidate
Physical Oceanography

I'm a PhD student in the Oceans&Climate group and my research focusses on the formation and variablity of the vertical density structure of the ocean, and it's connection to the Atlantic meridional overtuning circulation (AMOC).

Currently, I'm working on the identification of variables and regions that play a key role in a possible collapse of the AMOC and can therefore serve as early-warning signals.
