Welcome

My PhD in climate sciences supervised by Prof. A. Steiner focuses on the investigation of stationary high pressure systems (atmospheric blocking) and their impacts on surface temperature extremes. It is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) as part of the interdisciplinary doctoral college DK Climate Change.

Research interests

  • atmospheric blocking
  • temperature extremes
  • GPS radio occultation
  • evaluation of re-analyses & radio occultation
