PhD Topic/Title: Mining the ECMWF seasonal re-forecasting system to find global precipitation return values and to assess their trends and relations to temperature and land use changes over the recent past.

Research

I am interested in precipitation extremes, as these are globally causing high socio-economic impact. For adaptation purposes, we must understand why, where and to what extent extremes are changing. In my PhD, the focus will be on the use of ensemble members of past weather to better understand relations between extreme precipitation and temperature and land use changes.
