Research Interest

Turbulence and boundary-layer structure (e.g. data analysis for fluxes of heat, moisture, tracers and momentum; boundary-layer height / mixing height); General environmental and atmospheric physics observations (e.g. measurements with eddy-covariance, lidar, scintillometer, sodar, etc) Urban dispersion (mostly field campaigns, but also modelling)
