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 Karlsruhe (KIT), Mainz (JGU) and Munich (LMU) between May 13th - 20th 2019. She will give a talk at the IMK-Kolloquium at KIT and will discuss with the W2W scientists at all three main universities.
