Research interests

Dr Frederic Tridon is a post-doctoral research assistant in the Earth Observation Science group at the University of Leicester. He completed his PhD in 2011 at the Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand (France). His research interests focus on Doppler radar observations of cloud and precipitation at various frequencies, from millimetre to centimetre wavelength. He is currently involved in the NERC PERICLES project aiming at developing a multi-wavelength optimal estimation framework for the retrieval of precipitation profiles at the highly instrumented ARM facilities.
