Former PhD student in the group Airborne Measurements and UTLS Transport Processes, headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Peter Hoor.

Research Interests

My PhD thesis is focused on single particle mass spectrometer data that I collected in the Canadian High Arctic lower troposphere. I study processes controlling the summertime Arctic aerosol composition, including regional marine-biogenic and remote anthropogenic influences. I also use data from aircraft measurements in the Baltic Sea region to learn about the influence of ship traffic on the marine boundary layer aerosol composition.

Research tools

Airborne measurement data (NETCARE 2014, BALTIC 2015, ACLOUD 2017), lagrangian analysis tools (FLEXPART)
