About me

The scope of my research is to improve the representation of atmospheric aerosol formation, composition, properties, and size distribution in chemistry climate models to accurately predict their global budget and lifecycle as well as their effects on global air quality and climate. I specifically focus on advancing the description of organic aerosol formation. During my research, I have developed a computationally efficient module for the description of organic aerosol composition and evolution in the atmosphere (ORACLE) which is currently implemented in the ECHAM/MESSy Atmospheric Chemistry (EMAC) model to simulate organic aerosol formation and growth.
