Both my Bachelor's degree in Earth Science and my Master's degree in Atmospheric and Climate Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ) in Switzerland provided me with a comprehensive knowledge in mathematics, physics, biology and earth sciences. To broaden my knowledge in climate research and my great interest in ocean sciences, I undertook a research practicum at UNSW to work on my Master thesis titled "Mechanisms Driving Ocean Heat Uptake over ENSO Events". In this project, I simulated my own idealised ENSO events in a global ocean model and investigated processes that lead to vertical heat exchanges during these events. After completion of my Master's degree, I led a collaborative research project between ETHZ and MeteoSwiss on changes in the atmospheric circulation over Central Europe before returning to UNSW for my PhD studies.
