Interested in cloud microphysics (especially ice), radar & lidar remote-sensing methods, laboratory experiments on ice particle aerodynamics, scattering of electromagnetic waves by complex (ice) particles.
Interested in use of radar to profile clouds, evaluation of operational forecast models. Scientific leader of EarthCARE mission. Developing new concepts for spaceborne observations of winds and their assimilation into NWP.
Professor (part time, mostly based at ECMWF)
Interested in radiative transfer, scattering, development of variational retrieval algorithms with application to EarthCARE and other remote-sensing platforms.
Post Doctoral Research Assistant
Scattering from complex ice particles, and development of fast approximate methods for solution of 3D electromagnetic scattering problems.
Visiting fellow, primary affiliation FMI
Developing retrieval techniques for turbulence, wind and boundary layer propertied from Doppler lidar. Evaluation of clouds, aerosol and turbulence in numerical models.
