I am a climate scientist and actually, I am post-doctoral fellow at the University of Santiago de Compostela, but since 2017 I am working at the University of Porto, in the Department of Geography, for two years. I am originally from Grevenbroich, near by Cologne, in Germany. I graduated in Geography and Hispanic Philology at the University of Cologne and RWTH-Aachen University in 2010. After I met my wife in Galicia, I came to Santiago de Compostela, in northwest Spain, and made my Ph.D. in 2015 about the relationship between health and weather at the same University. Now I live in the fantastic city of Porto in Portugal.
The main lines of research are, on the one hand, biometeorology and geographies of health, the relationship between human health and the atmospheric environment, and on the other hand, applied physical geography with a focus on atmospheric variables and their spatio-temporal behaviors.
I am an enthusiastic R user, with a lot of curiosity for spatial analysis, data visualizations, management and manipulation, and GIS.
I am a member of the Public Health Research Group at the University of Santiago de Compostela. In addition, I am a close collaborator
of two other research groups, Geobiomet at the University of Cantabria and Climatology Group at the University of Barcelona.
Feel free to contact me.
