I work in the field of atmospheric remote sensing of aerosols and clouds. I do experimental research in the form of field experiements and theoretical work in the form of method development. The main tools I use for this purpose are lidar and sun photometer instruments. The focus of my work is on the optical characterisation of aerosol particles, the investigation of the contribution of different particle types to an aerosol mixture and the retrieval of microphysical properties by means of the so-called inversion of the measured optical data.

The focus of my work is on mineral dust particles whose non-spherical shape has significant effects on their interaction with electromagnetic radiation and separated them from most other kinds of aerosol particles.
