Within project C5 of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center Waves to Weather („Dynamical feature-based ensemble postprocessing of wind gusts within European winter storms“) I am working on methods for statistical postprocessing of weather forecasts. We focus on ensemble forecasts of wind gusts and apply modern machine learning methods like neural networks.
