My general research interest is on the behaviour of complex atmospheric systems and their interaction with other compartments of the Earth system, with a strong focus on environmental issues, from the local to the global scale.
I got a diploma in Meteorology at the University of Leipzig, Germany, in 2009. For the next 5 years, I continued work that I have started during my diploma thesis as PhD student and research assistant at the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research, Leipzig, Germany. The PhD project was also supported by a scholarship of the German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU). My work focused on the treatment of detailed aqueous phase chemistry of cloud droplets in regional 3-D atmospheric chemistry transport models (CTM). Those highly interconnected processes are important as aqueous phase chemistry can influence the budget of atmospheric gas phase oxidants and is responsible for a huge part of several chemical species found on ambient aerosol particles, such as sulfate or water soluble organic compounds, and therefore droplet and particle acidity. Because of that, cloud chemical processing of the aerosol is important for regional air quality. Additionally, aqueous phase chemistry induced altering of particles may regionally have an effect on microphysical cloud properties as particles usually undergo several cloud cycles prior to wet deposition loss by precipitation.
Since 2015, I am working at Centre for Environmental and Climate Research at Lund University. I changed the field slightly, going from regional to global simulations. Still, the focus is strongly on environmental issues and now gives the opportunity to study the highly coupled treatment of the Earth System components atmosphere, ocean, biosphere, and land surface. During the next 2 years I will particularly concentrate on the influences of biogenic emissions on cloud and precipitation formation and its feedbacks on the net radiation balance, with respect to a changing climate.
