BRUN Fanny

Fanny Brun is a glaciologist, specialist in Asian glaciers. His thesis, defended in 2018, focused on the influence of detrital cover on the mass balance of glaciers in Asia. Its research approaches combine spatial remote sensing and field measurements to answer glaciological questions. Fanny joined the IRD in 2020. In this context, she is interested in research issues related to development, particularly in Nepal, and to a lesser extent in Tajikistan. His current work focuses on the estimation of precipitation in mountain areas and the influence that the phase of precipitation can have on the mass balance of glaciers. They take place in collaboration with many partners, in Nepal, in France, and in other universities, which provide varied expertise on climate, meteorology or even specific instrumentation.
