Jeremy Berman is a PhD student in Atmospheric Science at the University at Albany, SUNY. His research focuses on the predictability of high-impact weather. He uses data mining, ensemble model forecasting, and statistically rigorous analysis to discover the casual pathways leading to high-impact weather events.
Jeremy has been invited by the W2W Early Career Scientists to visit all three locations (Munich, Mainz and Karlsruhe) from mid-October to mid-November 2017. He also took part in the 3rd Annual Meeting of W2W.
After his visit to Germany, he wrote: "I want to take a moment and say thank you for inviting me to visit as part of Waves to Weather. The month I spent in Germany from mid-October to mid-November was one of the greatest experiences of my life and I am grateful to all of you for helping to make my visit possible. (...) I spent roughly one week each at the Johannes-Gutenberg-University in Mainz, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Karlsruhe, and the Ludwig-Maximilian-University in Munich, with a presentation of my work at the Waves to Weather Annual Meeting in Kempten. During these visits I had the great pleasure of meeting many of you and learning about your research and sharing a bit about my own. Moreover, I learned a great deal about how meteorological research is conducted in Germany and how graduate students compare with those in the U.S. (...) I hope the interactions I've made will foster further collaborations between scientists in the U.S. and Europe."
