Personal details

MPhys, PhD

I'm a world leader in radiative transfer studies, related to clouds and precipitation microwave remote sensing and in simulation and correction of multiple scattering for space-borne radar systems. He has also extensive experience in microwave radiometry. He is the PI of the ADMIRARI radiometer (http://www2.meteo.uni-bonn.de/admirari/) that has participated to several GPM field campaigns part of the NASA Global Precipitation Mission ground validation program.


Active and passive remote sensing of clouds and precipitation from ground-based and space-borne platforms is the central theme of my research. Synergetic remote sensing observations from both space and ground-based sensors and their clever use through the development of new retrieval algorithms and sampling strategies constitute my approach for probing clouds and precipitation in their natural environment. The development of new Earth Observation radar concepts is also part of my group's research activities. Teaching
