After completing a bachelor degree in Meteorology at the FU Berlin, Stephanie pursued her interest in large-scale climate dynamics and studied Climate Physics at Geomar Kiel. Despite her private and professional affinity towards the tropics, Stephanie wrote her PhD thesis at the University of Bergen, Norway. She mainly studied the impact of the Pacific Ocean on Ethiopian summer rainfall in climate models and its role for the predictability of Ethiopian rainfall. In May 2018 she joined PIK and she will be an integral part of EPICC.

Scientific interests and role in EPICC

Stephanie's research interests are the predictability of tropical climate on seasonal and longer time-scales. She worked mainly with climate model data and investigated the quality of dynamical predictions. In particular, she is interested in how the reproducibility and predictability of the the tropical-large scale circulation affects such dynamical climate predictions. In EPICC, Stephanie holds the position of regional climate data researcher and will be in charge of collecting, processing and analyzing climate data.
