I'm giving a talk on geoengineering at the Symposium Dürnstein on 25.3.
I wrote a newspaper article for Der Standard "Geoengineering - a painkiller against climate change"
I wrote a newspaper article explaining the basics about cirrus cloud geoengineering (in German) with a title "Rettung aus den Wolken?" for Der Pragmaticus.
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.
