IMK-AAF welcomes AvH Postdoctoral Research Fellow

In September 2017, Dr. Nsikanabasi Umo joined IMK-AAF following his prestigious Alexander von Humboldt (AvH) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Award.

His work will focus on understanding the ice nucleation abilities of combustion and other aerosol particles at mixed-phase and cirrus cloud conditions. During October he is leading first experiments with the worldwide unique AIDA Cloud Simulation Chamber at IMK-AAF.

Nsikanabasi Umo obtained his PhD in 2014 from the University of Leeds, United Kingdom, in the field of Atmospheric Sciences. He is grateful to the AvH Foundation, Germany, for the award, which he considers a golden opportunity for his career advancement.

KIT International also welcomes Nsikanabasi Umo as new AvH Fellow.
