Director of Destination EarthDestination Earth Departmentpage tabs Profile Summary: I am the Director of Destination Earth at ECMWF and responsible for implementing ECMWF's contribution to this European Commission funded flagship action. This responsibility requires a strong engagement with our partners, the European Space Agency and the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, the funding agency represented by the Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology, but also with several contractual partners and the wider stakeholder communities from academia, national research centres and meteorological-hydrological services across our Member States, the European Commission, international organisations and industry. Professional interests: Coordinating challenging international science-technology programmes in weather and climate prediction Implementing the concept of digital twins towards enhanced performance and making complex, interactive workflows accessible to users Addressing the high-performance computing and data handling challenges towards the exascale in our community Advancing Earth-system modelling and the fusion of simulations with observations Creating opportunities for a new generation of experts at the interface between Earth-system, computing and application science Career background: Education 1990-1992: University of Hamburg, Germany, Promotion Meteorology (Ph.D. degree), Prof. Dr. H.
