Christopher Jung completed a B.Sc. in Environmental Sciences from 2009 to 2012 at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. From 2012 to 2015 he graduated in the "M.Sc. Environmental Sciences " in Freiburg. Since 2015 he is doctoral research assistant at the Chair of Environmental Meteorology. He graduated in February 2018.

Area of research

Christopher Jung's research interest is in small-scale modeling of statistical properties of the near-surface airflow. The main objectives of his research are optimisation approaches for wind energy potential assessments and the reduction of windstorm risk in forests.
