Helmholtz Young Investigators Group "Aerosol effects on cloud ice, precipitation and climate"

group picture

The Helmholtz-University Young Investigators Group "Aerosol Effects on Cloud Ice, Precipitation and Climate" is working on improved parameterizations of aerosol-cloud interactions for numerical models on different scales. A special focus is on cloud ice formation. The group is lead by Prof. Dr. Corinna Hoose. Read more about our projects and browse our publications.

We are a diverse and interdisciplinary team with background in physics, meteorology and chemistry. From left to right (05/2012): Isabelle Steinke (PhD student), Sandro di Natale (Diploma student), Candy Anquetil-Deck (Postdoc), Corinna Hoose (group leader), Marco Paukert (PhD student), Matthias Hummel (PhD student), Isabelle Reichardt (PhD student), Alexa-Cora Schnur (Bachelor student) and Ahmad Jhony Rusumdar (Postdoc). Missing on picture: Monika Niemand (Postdoc) and Romy Ullrich (PhD student). Contact details are given below.

If you are interested in joining our group as a postdoc or PhD student, please contact Corinna Hoose for discussing research topics and funding options. We frequently offer Diploma, Bachelor or Masters thesis topics related to numerical modelling of aerosol-cloud interactions. Please contact us.

Helmholtz-University Young Investigators Groups are jointly funded by the host institute and the Helmholtz Association President‘s Initiative and Networking Fund.
