Welcome to Luis Garcia-Carreras
Welcome to Dr Luis Garcia-Carreras to the School as a new lecturer.
Luis has worked at Leeds and Stockholm University on a variety of projects on the West African monsoon, the Sahara, and more recently Brazil, taking part in several aircraft field campaigns along the way. Luis’ research interests include tropical meteorology (particularly linked to convection and rainfall), the effects of land-use change on climate, as well as boundary layer processes in tropical and desert environments. He is particularly interested in understanding how tropical rainfall is represented in climate models, and the implications of model errors in rainfall for other aspects of the Earth system (e.g. for predictions of future climate impacts).
