Julien is interested in the tropical climate variability over various time scales ranging from seasons to centuries. His research mostly focuses on the dynamics of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and how it is affected by the on-going increase of greenhouse gases. He uses a variety of climate models outputs (from intermediate complexity to fully coupled state-of-the-art general circulation models) to assess the relevant physical processes involved in ENSO dynamics, particularly in the Eastern Tropical Pacific basin. His current research resides on the relationships between ENSO phase and the Tropical Cyclones activity over this key region. Other interests include regional modeling of the Humboldt upwelling system (Peru-Chile), statistical and mathematical tools for climate data analysis and nonlinear dynamics.
