J. (Jose) Dias Neto


While I was a soldier in the Bazilian Army (2004-2007), I was selected for the undergrad program in Physics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (2007-2011, Brazil). After, I was approved for the Master program in Meteorology from the National Institute For Space Research (2012-2014, Brazil). After that, I worked at the same institute as Research Assistant (2014-2017). From 2017 to 2021, I worked on my PhD in Meteorology at the University of Cologne (Germany).


As postdoctoral research at TU-Delft, I am focused on studying turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer and investigating how it relates to the occurrence of clouds. For that, I am using a novel approach using the synergy of wind lidar and cloud radars to retrieve wind profiles throughout the atmospheric column. Wind lidars provide information in aerosol load sub cloud layer while radars provide information within clouds. Those wind profiles can be later used to evaluate climate and weather models.
