- On the extremely warm North Atlantic for n1info.si (Aug, Očistili smo ozračje...in s tem dodatno segreli oceane)
-On hail formation for n1info.si (Kako v resnici nastane toča?) (Jul)
-I discussed geoengineering for the podcast "Tauwetter" (Wie sich das Klima manipulieren lässt?) and was featured in an article on geoengineering in the Austrian magazine Profil (Geoengineering: Irrsin oder Klima-Rettung?) (Jul)
I wrote a blog post for the newspaper of the University of Vienna on solar geoengineering (A planetary sunscreen can probably cool the climate, but not solve the climate crisis) (May)
A few of my thoughts on geoengineering appeared in Der Standards' "Rätsel der Wissenschaft" (Können wir die Erde künstlich kühlen?) and in: "Warum künstliche Klimakühlung dringend besser erforscht werden muss" (May)
I talked about geoengineering for Ö1 radio (in German) (Kann Hi-Tech die Klimakrise Lösen) (Mar)
Interview for n1info.si on clouds, climate, weather modification, and geoengineering (in Slovenian)
(Skrinjica geoinženiringa je že odprta) (Feb)
A brochure "WTF is Climate Change?!" dedicated particularly to youth and educators I helped draft is available in English, Slovenian, and Hungarian and accessible here.
I’m a cloud and climate scientist, currently a MSCA-IF funded postdoc in the climate dynamics group at the University of Vienna led by Aiko Voigt. I work on the intersection of cloud (micro)physics and climate, studying how clouds form and dissolve and how they may change with warming. I also spent a large part of my PhD studying (with the help of climate model simulations) controversial ideas of artificially modifying cirrus clouds to partially counteract global warming. My recent work contributed to a better understanding of the interplay between radiative and microphysical feedbacks in tropical anvil clouds.
I have been interested in the physical processes surrounding me since my childhood on the (tiny) Slovenian coast. When I was nine, I started to measure precipitation and started to become more interested in systematic observations of weather phenomena. During the high school years my awareness about climate change increased, and I became involved in a youth association working mainly on peer education of youth, and helped set up an educational program on climate change and sustainable development.
