Career

  • 2015 – present: PhD student at Université Lille 1, Laboratoire d'Optique Atmosphérique (Villeneuve d'Ascq, France)
  • 2013 – 2015: Master of Science in Meteorology at Universität Leipzig, Institute for Meteorology (Leipzig, Germany). Master thesis: Analysis of the Global Distribution of Ice Crystal Number Concentrations
  • 2010 – 2013: Bachelor of Science in Meteorology at Universität Leipzig, Institute for Meteorology (Leipzig, Germany). Bachelor thesis: Uncertainties in the Retrieval of Cloud Properties from Satellite Remote Sensing

Activities

I am currently working on my PhD thesis with the subject:
Retrievals of Cirrus Cloud Properties from the Synergy of Ground-Based Lidar and Multi- Spectral Infrared Radiometer Measurements

Research Interests:

  • optical and microphysical properties of cirrus clouds
  • interactions clouds - radiation

Methods

  • Developement of an algorithm based on Optimal Estimation to retrieve cirrus cloud properties by coupling ground-based lidar and thermal infrared radiometer measurements
  • Radiative Transfer Modelling
