I am interested in the mechanisms of shallow convection and the role shallow clouds plays for our weather and climate. Especially, I strive to understand controls on rain development in shallow convection and the influence of precipitating shallow cumuli organizing into different spatial patterns.

-       How does precipitation fraction and intensity relate to the spatial arrangement and properties of precipitation objects?
-       How important is the interplay between precipitation and organization in shallow convection?
-       Are organization-precipitation interactions critical for the shallow cloud feedback? What are their controls on cloudiness?
