In March 2021, I started my PhD in climate physics on abrupt monsoon transitions with Prof. Dr. Anders Levermann and Dr. Jacob Schewe. In my research, I particularly focus on the future of the Indian monsoon and the Westafrican monsoon under different emission scenarios. Besides the projections of climate models, I am also interested in the physical background of these changes as well as their socioeconomic impacts.
