As a researcher, I am interested in atmospheric aerosols, their interaction with solar radiation, and aerosol optical properties. I try to understand how different types of aerosols experience hygroscopic growth and how that impacts and enhances aerosol light scattering.
I collaborate in the AeroCom phase III INSITU experiment, where we tried to find out how well the current parameterizations of 10 Earth System Models simulate aerosol light enhancement due to hygroscopic growth. A summary of our latest findings and publications can be found here.
I have had a great opportunity to work with Master and Ph.D. students while supervising a MSc Thesis, and some student research projects within the course series e-science tools in atmospheric science. Our last course was held online and you can find some information here.
