BSc and MSc in Meteorology (University of Hamburg)
Matthias did both his BSc and MSc in meteorology at the University of Hamburg and worked on topics related to convection parameterisations in general circulation models.
During his PhD he will now examine observational data from Darwin’s research radar to connect deep convective organisation patterns to the large-scale state of the atmosphere.
For assistance in detecting relevant physical processes leading to those patterns, an approach involving neural nets will be made. Once the important processes are defined, different kinds of models, from large eddy simulations to general circulation models, can be assessed for their representation and possibly improved.
