The Climate and Statistical Mechanics group
at ENS de Lyon aims at

Studying climate dynamics phenomena, specifically related to turbulence, climate extremes, and large scale dynamics of atmospheres and oceans.

Developping algorithms aimed at computing rare events in complex dynamical systems, like climate dynamics or turbulent flows, based on large deviation theory and statistical mechanics.

Studying fundamental questions in statistical mechanics and dynamical systems theory, often using large deviation theory, bridging from mathematical physics to modeling and applications
