Microstructural properties of snow constitute a key link between the evolution of snow and ice on the ground and boundary layer processes as driving force. I am mainly interested in developing minimal physical models for snow processes on small scales and upscaling these effects for applications in cryospheric sciences. I rely on statistical physics, simulations, micro-computed tomography and the analysis of large data sets.
Snow is commonly investigated at the intersection between various disciplines like material sciences, physics, environmental sciences, atmospheric sciences, computer sciences or mathematics. There are always opportunities for MSc/BSc topics which can be taylored to match specific requirements of either subject. Just send me an email.
You want to know more about Snow Physics? Visit our lecture "Snowcover: Physics and modeling" (joint with M. Schneebeli) at ETH, Zurich. The lecture is held every spring semester.
