    Copernicus Atmospheric Product Expert

    EUMETSAT, Darmstadt (Germany) 

    ▪ Finalisation of the operational PMAp algorithm for the retrieval of aerosol optical depth over land​

    ▪ Attendance of the Sentinel-3 atmospheric product developments (aerosol, fire radiative power and cloud mask) lead by ESA:

    ▫ Review of documents (e.g. ATBD, I/O descriptions)

    ▫ Participation in progress meetings and design reviews including identification of shortcomings and preparation of RIDs to suggest changes

    ▫ Preparation of internal documents

    01/04/2011–30/09/2015

    Aerosol Product Development Consultant at EUMETSAT

    HAMTEC Consulting, Darmstadt (Germany) 

    My major task was the development of a new operational aerosol algorithm PMAp using a multi-sensor approach (GOME, AVHRR, IASI) starting from scratch up to regular operations. The project was realised in close cooperation with EUMETSAT engineers responsible for the technical environment.

    Further tasks:

    ▪ Generation of associated documentation (e.g. ATBD, User Requirements, Validation Report)

    ▪ Presentation of PMAp at project meetings and international conferences (e.g. ICAP, ESA CCI, EGU)

    ▪ Verification and validation of the PMAp product (own analysis and support of external studies)

    ▪ Review of existing aerosol algorithms to evaluate their applicability to different satellite missions

    15/12/2009–30/04/2011

    Postdoctoral researcher

    Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (Otto Hahn Institute), Mainz (Germany) 

    ▪ Extension of the HICRU cloud retrieval algorithms to allow application to other satellite missions

    ▪ Support of the HICRU cloud fraction algorithm integration into the operational processor at the Dutch Weather Service KNMI

    ▪ Analysis of surface albedo databases from different satellites (SCIAMACHY, GOME, MERIS, MODIS)

    ▪ Development of new concepts for cloud retrieval from the GOSAT satellite (combination of oxygen-A band, optical imager and thermal infrared measurements). Presentation based on case studies and radiative transfer modelling at the GOSAT PI meeting in Kyoto, Japan (01/2010)

    ▪ Undergraduate student supervision in the field of satellite remote sensing

     

     

    01/10/2003–09/12/2009

    PhD dissertation researcher

    Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and University of Heidelberg, Mainz/Heidelberg (Germany)

    Specific tasks were:

    ▪ Application of radiative transfer models to satellite data in the solar spectral range

    ▪ Retrieval of oxygen, oxygen dimer and water vapour from satellites using Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS)

    ▪ Validation and verification of operational and scientific cloud data products

    ▪ Satellite-crossradiometric calibration of SCIAMACHY Level-1 data and quantification of degradation effects

    ▪ Participation in scientific projects for the retrieval of atmospheric trace gases from satellite (in particular EVERGREEN)

    ▪ Oral and poster presentations at international conferences and project meetings

    ▪ Scientific reviews for the journal "Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics"

    ▪ Support for the IT infrastructure and software of the satellite remote sensing team

    ▪ Teaching experience: Tutor at the University of Heidelberg (physics introductory courses, physics introductory lab)
