----------- Research interests

My research interests include the Earth's climate during the instrumental past and in the future. In particular:

- modelling aerosol-cloud interactions and its relevance for uncertainty on cloud feedbacks; anthropogenic aerosols and regional climate climate change

- methods to separate external forcing from internal climate variability; attribution of observed changes (detection and attribution, event attribution)

- regional climate projections and their use for adaptation planning; interdisciplinary work to identify and communicate climate risks

- philosophical aspects of climate science, in particular decision-making in climate research and the role of value-judgements therein
