My research is dedicated to the dynamics and predictability of windstorms in the mid latitudes and subtropics. I focus on different scales from the local formation of wind gusts to the interaction of storms with the global atmospheric circulation. I mainly use models for numerical weather prediction and combine high-resolution simulations with probabilistic forecasts.
