MAR 2024 - Present PhD Student at Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon, GeesthachtMy research focuses on predicting coastal ocean heat waves and storms using machine learning. I am studying how to design and apply machine learning algorithms that allow the prediction and causal understanding of marine heat waves and storms in North Sea and East China Sea.
