Meet our scientists

  • Prof. Pavlos Kollias

    International Faculty (University of Cologne and Stony Brook University)

    "The Cologne-Bonn region is one of Europe’s premier
    cross paths in atmospheric research featuring observing
    facilities such as the Jülich Observatory for Cloud
    Evolution (JOYCE) and excellent computational science
    initiatives at the
    Universities of Cologne and Bonn.

    This infrastructure combined with the availability of
    young talented researchers, the vibrant, intellectual
    urban centers, and the spectacular
    landscape of the
    Rhine Ruhr region offers an ideal working and living

  • Dr. Alexandra Tsimpidi

    Postdoctoral researcher (Institute of Energy and Climate Research Troposphere, FZ Jülich)

    "Forschungszentrum Jülich with world-class
    infrastructures is an ideal place to conduct my research
    on simulating the atmospheric fate of the aerosols and
    quantifying their gigantic impact on Earth’s energy
    balance and human health.

    My research strongly benefits from access to the Jülich
    Supercomputing Centre which operates two of the most
    powerful supercomputers in the world.”

  • Dr. Sophie Stolzenberger

    Postdoctoral researcher (Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation, University of Bonn)

    "As a meteorologist working in a satellite geodesy
    team, I benefit from the collaboration with data
    specialists of different areas of expertise –
    we are excellently linked to Helmholtz institutions
    like the Alfred-Wegener Institute and the
    Jülich Supercomputing Centre.”

  • Dr. Stefan Kneifel

    Junior group leader (Institute of Geophysics and Meteorology)

    "I chose the University of Cologne for my
    Noether Junior Researcher Project
    because it optimally provides a stimulating
    scientific environment as well as excellent
    research infrastructure. In my project on 
    understanding processes in ice clouds and
    associated precipitation we profit from the
    unique expertise and infrastructure.”


  • Prof. Martin Riese

    Director of Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK-7, Forschungszentrum Jülich)

    “Our investigation in Jülich focus on global interactions of air
    quality and climate. The Asian monsoon circulation plays a
    crucial role here, because it transports heavily polluted air
    masses from the South-East Asian boundary layer into the
    global stratosphere. In CESOC we cooperate with the
    University of Cologne to obtain an improved understanding
    of the source regions for transport of pollutants by the
    monsoon circulation by combining Lagrangian transport
    techniques with visual analyses.”
