Since 2015, Dr. Kevin Sieck is working as a Science Officer at GERICS. He studied Meteorology in Hamburg and did his PhD in the "regional climate modelling" group at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. In his thesis, he investigates the internal variability in regional climate models. At GERICS, he is responsible for maintenance and development of the regional climate model REMO. In addition, he takes care of the digital infrastructure at GERICS. Since April 2020, he coordinates together with Prof. Dr. Joaquim Pinto from KIT the NUKLEUS project funded by the ministry of Research in Germany. The main goal of NUKLEUS is providing robust climate information on convection-permitting scales for Germany.
His scientific interests are ensemble projections with regional climate models with focus on convection-permitting scales and the robustness of the resulting climate information. In addition, he is interested in the development of parametrizations needed for the representation of sub-scale processes in regional climate models.
