Willem looks at climate modelling, the global ocean circulation and its stability and Paleoclimatology (climates of the past). His work is at the interface of geology, climate science and applied mathematics, with several main broad research interests:

  • The conundrum of pervading global warmth up to the late Eocene (33 million years ago), and the subsequent global cooling trend culminating in the ice ages.
  • The role of abrupt responses in the Earth system to ice sheet evolution during glacial cycles.
  • A mathematical description of the stability of ocean circulation
