  • Diploma (Masters) Meteorology from the Leibniz University, Hannover
  • PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz/University of Mainz, Germany. Airborne in situ measurements of the tropical tropopause layer clouds


Wiebke’s research focusses on clouds in the tropical tropopause layer, particularly subvisible cirrus and clouds in overshooting convection, and their impact on stratospheric humidity.

As a DFG (German Research Foundation) research fellow at the University of Melbourne she will study the formation, maintenance, and occurrence frequencies of the tropical tropopause layer clouds by using model simulations and ground and satellite based remote sensing observations.
