About me

I am a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, Germany, and am interested in extreme conditions occurring on longer time scales. In particular, I am interested in the driving mechanisms and predictability of heat extremes on sub-decadal time scales. My dissertation project focuses on the sub-decadal variability of European summer heat extremes. In this work, I have not only found a mechnaism linking the accumulation of heat in the North Atlantic to extremely warm European summers occurring several years later, but also shown that this mechanism can be used to improve the predictability of extremely warm summers, and thus temperature in general.

I work under the supervision of Wolfgang Müller, Daniela Matei, and Laura Suarez-Gutierrez in the Earth System Modeling and Prediction group of the Climate Variability department.
