Brief CV

My research focuses on deterministic-probabilistic forecasting, risk assessment and verification of atmospheric models. Thematically, the papers fall in the following categories:

  • Weather and Climate Prediction
    • NWP: Boundary Layer Meteorology
    • RCM: Climate Change Projections and Impacts, Climatic ectremes
  • Weather dependent coupled systems:
    • Air quality models: photochemical and particulate pollutants
    • Emission models: biogenic emissions, road transport emissions
    • Infectious-disease models: West Nile Virus, SARS-CoV-2
    • Agricultural models: evapotranspiration, precision irrigation
    • Renewable energy models: solar and wind potential, soiling
