What I Do
I work as a Scientist in the Clouds and Global Climate research group at the Universität Leipzig. My main research interest is the realism of the representation of cloud-scale physical processes, which climate models have to parameterize on the basis of their much coarser grid spacing. In my current projects, I aim to use observations of process variables, rather than state variables, to evaluate and eventually improve climate models.
Our research group studies climate change primarily using global models and satellite observations, and with a focus on the role of clouds in the climate system. In addition to our individual and group research, we participate in a number of multinational projects investigating the modeling of aerosol–cloud–precipitation interactions.
