People

The Atmospheric Complexity group is based at the Niels Bohr Institute Copenhagen. As we combine simulations, observations and theory, we collaborate with researchers from institutes both focused on empirical as well as modeling approaches.

Faranak Tootoonchi, Ph.D. Student

Faranak Tootoonchi

(Uppsala University, co-supervised)

As a woman from a country with significant water scarcity, Faranak is concerned about hydro-climatological properties in changing environments.
She has a keen interest in statistical and mathematical formulation of natural processes.
PhD thesis topic: bias correction of climate models and hydrological modeling for climate impact assessment
