Diplom-Meteorologe - University of Hannover, Hannover/Germany
After various years working as a meteorologist in a small consultancy specialised in air quality and odour dispersion modelling as well as odour emissions and immissions measurements, I've joined the EPSRC CDT in Next Generation Computational Modelling as a Postgraduate Research student.
In my PhD thesis I will investigate the dispersion of small inertial particles in the atmospheric boundary layer. For this purpose, a combination of research models developed in former projects of Prof. John Shrimpton and Prof. Zheng-Tong Xie will be used and adapted where necessary.
I am particularly interested in ensuring close agreement to experimental results. Over the last years I have worked with a variety of meteorological and dispersion modelling as well as measurement approaches. Current regulatory dispersion models are capable of predicting reasonably accurate particle concentrations over long averaging periods and at distances where the influence of source geometry is neglible. For short term predictions and in the near field of the source, a reliable prediction of concentrations cannot be easily achieved yet. Improving this is one of the main goals of my work.
My research is funded by EPSRC and DSTL.
