Shira Raveh-Rubin is the principal investigator of the Dynamical Meteorology Group at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israël. Her research interests are the dynamics of extratropical weather systems, extreme weather events, transport of moisture and aerosols, and numerical modeling. Her group is in particular interested in understanding the mechanisms that govern the day-to-day weather variability, in understanding how weather systems interact across scales, why some weather events become extreme and how predictable are high-impact events. To address these questions, her group analyzes large datasets and develops novel diagnostic tools and model experiments. Shira's research is therefore of interest for W2W and in particular for the research areas A and C.
She will visit Mainz (JGU), Karlsruhe (KIT), and Munich (LMU) between May 13th - 17th 2019.
On Monday 13th she will visit JGU where she will discuss, and finally have dinner, with W2W researchers.
On Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th she will visit KIT and give a seminar at the IMK-Colloquium on Tuesday.
She will finally visit LMU on Thursday 16th - Friday 17th and give a seminar in the Theoretical Meteorology group meeting on Thursday.
