Publications

I am a PhD student in the group of Rüdiger Westermann. My reasearch focuses on the visualization of ensemble weather forecast data, using machine learning and data mining techiniques such as clustering, dimenionality reduction, and statistics. Further, we investigate the correction and augmentation of scientific data using Deep Neural Networks. The research is conducted within the transregio project Waves to Weather (W2W) funded by the DFG.

Bachelor and Master Thesis Topics

- Deep Learning: Predict the most likely weather forecast (out of 50) based on past measurements

- Data analytics on a 3D, multimodal, time-dependent ensemble cloud-dataset

- Analysis of correlation structures in 3D over time/ensembles

- Comparison of super-resolution neural networks on very sparse grids to classical methods (e.g., radial basis functions)

If you are interested in one of the above topics or topics related to meteorological data analysis/visualization, please contact me.
