About me

At KNMI, I focus on ground and space-based remote sensing of clouds and aerosols using a range different instruments.


I operate a polarization Lidar at Cabauw (see http://www.knmi.nl/research/UVLIDAR/index_old.php). I am an active member of the ESA/JAXA Earth Clouds and Radiation Explorer (EarthCARE) mission advisory group and play a leading role in the mission performance simulation and the development of retrieval algorithms.
