Andreas Prein, PhD

Atmospheric Scientist

Project Scientist, National Center for Atmospheric Research

Andreas is analyzing the connections between extreme weather types and historically large wildfires for the Extreme Weather & Wildfire Team. His research focuses on an improved understanding of the physical processes that change the frequency and intensity of extreme events in a warming climate. This includes changes in processes across all scales of motions, ranging from synoptic scales to microscales. His main interest is hydrologic extreme events. He holds a doctorate in Physics and a master’s in Environmental Science from the University of Graz (Austria).
