Atmospheric drivers of extreme floods 
The interdisciplinary DFG Research Unit “Space-Time Dynamics of Extreme Floods” (SPATE, investigates the development of extreme floods in space and time with focus on the involved processes in the atmosphere and river catchment. My research focuses on the large-scale atmospheric conditions leading to extreme flood events, as well as local processes that enhance precipitation.
