Philipp joins us from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where he recently obtained his PhD. Philipp is an expert on heat wave dynamics and intensively studied heat waves across Europe from a Lagrangian point of view.
Philipp now joins the INTEXseas project as a PostDoc. In INTEXseas, Philipp will investigate, among other things, under which temperature regimes large amounts of precipitation occur and he will study the meteorological reasons for that. Moreover, Philipp plans to identify extreme summer objects in numerous large ensemble simulations from various modelling centers using an identifiaction scheme that has previousely been developped in INTEXseas.
