Dr Benjamin Le Roy is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellow in the regional and local climate change department at GERICS (Climate Service Center Germany) of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon. His fellowship is part of the CIRCE (City-oriented Impacts of Regional Climate for Europe) project, which aims to find the best way of assessing the impacts of regional climate change on European cities. During this project he will make us of already existing regional climate projections at high-resolution over Europe carried out under the WCRP CORDEX initiative and help contribute to the CORDEX Flagship Pilot Study URB-RCC (URBan environments and Regional Climate Change). The main goals of the project are to identify impacts indicators that are relevant for local urban decision-makers; find the best regional climate modelling configurations for urban impact studies and analyse the future impacts of climate change on cities.

Before joining GERICS, Benjamin Le Roy studied physical geography in Grenoble Alpes University, then worked at the CNRM (Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques) where he obtained a PhD in urban climatology at the university of Toulouse III Paul Sabatier. He then worked at Princeton University and the GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) on the simulation of Philadelphia’s past and future urban climates for heat and health applications.
