Matthias graduated with a PhD in May 2009 in the area of synoptic climatology and air quality at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium). Before his current position as a FWO post-doctoral Research Fellow, Matthias had a research position on the “Evaluation of Coupled Global Climate Models in terms of circulation patterns”. Within this program he initiated the implementation of the COSMO-CLM regional climate model at the supercomputer vic3 in Leuven and contributed to the CLIMAQS project (Climate and Air Quality Modelling for Policy Support).
Matthias’ research interests include (1) urban climate modelling; (2) urban land-atmosphere interactions; (3) urban heat island mitigation and climate change adaptation in cities; (4) synoptic climatology and air quality; and (5) urban design and sustainable building concepts.
