About me

I am a PhD candidate at the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg working with Bjorn Stevens and Stefan Bühler. I am interested in the strength and interaction of radiative-feedbacks in the Earth system. Together with Sally Dacie I am developing a one-dimensional radiative-equilibrium model, konrad, to simulate clear and all-sky climate feedbacks.

Key aspects of activity:

  • Radiative transfer in the Earth's atmosphere
  • Climate-feedbacks in radiative-convective equilibrium
  • Development of the Python packages konrad and typhon
