About me

Incredible, after 3.5 years my last paper from the PhD is out!
To what extent can cirrus cloud seeding counteract global warming? (Gasparini et al., 2020, ERL)

What's new?

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 which bound me to more 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 setting up an educational programme on climate change and sustainable development. I went on to study physics at the University of Trieste, where I finished my Bachelor degree. Afterwards I decided to follow one of my hobbies and study atmospheric and climate science at ETH Zürich in Switzerland, where I finished the Master degree and continued with a PhD project in the group of Prof. Ulrike Lohmann. The PhD research on the controversial topic of human interventions in the climate system called geoengineering gave me a lot of thought food related both to climate modelling and to broader aspects of geoengineering. The main focus of my PhD were cloud (micro)physics and cloud radiative effects. I moved to Seattle in March 2018 to study radiative effects of clouds in the tropics, in particular convective anvil clouds. I would like to better understand what physical processes control their evolution and what are the main sources of model bias when simulating them.
