About me

I am a postdoc at the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg working with Bjorn Stevens and Hauke Schmidt. Within the Monsoon 2.0 project I am responsible to extend and improve workflows for the analysis of the massive data produced by global storm-resolving climate models.

In my previous PhD project, I have co-developed the one-dimensional radiative-convective equilibrium model konrad. Konrad has been used in various studies to analyse the radiative forcing and feedbacks of a well-defined system. Some of this research involved the usage of the line-by-line radiative transfer model ARTS which is partly developed at the Universität Hamburg in the working group of Stefan Bühler.

Key aspects of activity:

  • Implementation and analysis of global storm-resolving climate simulations
  • Radiative forcing and feedbacks in the Earth's atmosphere
  • Development of the one-dimensional radiative-convective equilibrium model konrad
