Born in 1993, Nicolas François Lucas Ramseier’s primary research focus is on probability and stochastic calculus applied to oceanography.
He completed a Bachelor and a Master of Science in Mathematics as well as a Minor in Arctic Oceanography at l’Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL).
Benefiting from an exchange program, Nicolas Ramseier wrote his master thesis at the Hydrodynamics laboratory of UiO (Norway). Under the guidance of Prof. Karsten Trulsen and Prof. Atle Jensen, his research focused on probabilistic approaches to wave shoaling.
Passionate by Arctic exploration and high-latitude climate, he regularly participates in polar expeditions mainly through Russian or Norwegian research institutions.
July - August 2018, fieldwork on ocean currents in the White Sea and circumnavigation of Novaya Zemlya on board of the oceanographic research-vessel “Professor Molchanov” led by Prof. Konstantin Zaikov and Prof. Eric Hoesli.
March 2019, fieldwork on wave shoaling in polar climate in Kvaløya (Norway) as part of work at the University of Oslo.
July 2019 (planned), fieldwork on free wave in polar climate in the White Sea, Barents Sea and in the Svalbard costal region.
Movetia grant for project abroad.
