Alexander Reinbold works as a research assistant at GERICS. He works primarily for the BMBF-funded joint project "ProPolis" and deals with the operationalization of the urban climate model PALM-4U and the capacity building with and with the future users of the model.
Previously, Alexander completed both the Bachelor's and Master's degrees in meteorology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. In his first thesis, he dealt with the atmospheric conditions for deep convection and the regional risk of hail over Europe. In his master thesis, he analyzed the cyclonic activity and the structure of strong non-tropical cyclones in a global and a regional climate simulation on the boundary conditions of the last glacial maximum. In addition to paleoclimate and convective systems, Alexander's other scientific interests include tropical cyclones and the study of processes in the Earth and climate system. During his studies, he worked as a research assistant at the Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research in a project to improve the forecast for heavy rain events in the Mediterranean.
