Professional summary

Cornelia is interested in convective storms, extreme weather and how the land affects the atmosphere with consequences for regional water cycles. Her research focuses on tropical regions, in particular Africa and tropical South America, where she uses a combination of remote sensing data and atmospheric modelling to evaluate how convection and storm characteristics changed in the past decades and what we can expect for the future.

Since 2023, Cornelia has been a NERC fellow, investigating drivers of convective organisation and new ways of predicting these powerful storms.
