Herminia Torelló-Sentelles

PhD student (doctoral assistant) since October 2021.

About me

I joined the Hydrometeorology and Surface Processes Group after completing an MSc in Integrated Climate System Sciences at the University of Hamburg and a BSc in Physics at the University of Bristol.

I am currently working on understanding how urban areas impact the space-time properties of heavy rainfall at the small-scale. I am analyzing weather radar data and using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model to study urban rainfall modification effects and their processes in different cities. My work contributes to the project ‘Rainfall and Floods in Future Cities’.
