Hans M. Segura Cajachagua


I have a post-doc position at the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology. My actual research is the contribution of shallow clouds to precipitation and the free troposphere moistening in the tropics. As part of this research, I'm interested in identifying the differences in the role of shallow clouds in convection precipitation over the ocean and land. Furthermore, I'm involved in the analysis of tropical precipitation and its representation in storm resolving models (SRM). Topics as the reproduction of the ITCZ and monsoon systems are fundamental questions of my study.
