Welcome! We work on atmospheric problems ranging from cloud microphysics, radiation to large-scale dynamics. Our primary interests are mechanisms of interactions between different processes on different scales, and how this interaction leads to the climate as we know it.

Post-Doc positions available.
We are currently looking for an expert in radiative transfer. Interested? Please contact Stephan Fueglistaler by email.
Tra Dinh
Tra Dinh, Postdoctoral Research Associate.
Tra is working on clouds in the Tropical Tropopause Layer, with a focus on the dynamical conditions leading to clouds, and, conversely, the impact of cloud radiative heating perturbations on dynamics. (more)
Aaron Match
Aaron Match, graduate student.
Aaron is working on stratospheric dynamics, with a focus of the evolution of the stratospheric Brewer-Dobson circulation in the aftermath of large volcanic eruptions. Observations suggest a rather different stratospheric circulation afer the eruption of Pinatubo compared to El-Chichon, which may be of great relevance in the context of stratospheric "geo-engineering" proposals.
Sydney Mandelbaum
Sydney Mandelbaum, Geosciences major.
Sydney is analysing Earth's energy balance at the top of the atmosphere, with a focus on the role of clouds for hemispheric asymmetries of today's climate.
Maximilien Bolot
Maximilien Bolot,Postdoctoral Research Associate.
Max is working on tropical convection, troposphere-to-stratosphere transport, and dehydration in the tropical tropopause layer with a focus on thin cirrus clouds.
Jonathan Lin
Jonathan Lin, Computer Sciences major.
Jonathan is interested in statistical aspects of weather prediction, with a focus on Hurricanes. For his senior thesis, he analyses numerical model predictions with advanced statistical methods.

Claire Radley
Claire has been working on the global radiative balance, with a focus on the role of clouds and the question how local model biases may affect the models' response to perturbations. She is now at McKinsey.
