about me

I am working as a scientist at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) on developing energy efficient scalable numerical methods towards weather prediction on exascale supercomputers. On this website you can find some of my results and some of my teaching material which I developed for lectures given in the past years.
