Prof. dr. Pier Siebesma is senior scientist in the Regional Climate Division of KNMI and part-time professor at the University of Delft. He is an expert on planetary boundary layer physics and has developed improved convective parameterizations for the ECMWF weather prediction model. Since 2007 he is chair of the GEWEX Cloud Systems Studies (GCSS) and member of the GEWEX Modeling Prediction Panel (GMPP). His main interest is in the understanding, modeling and parameterization of cloud related processes, including cloud physics, cloud dynamics, cloud structures, and moist convection. As such he has been involved in Past Field Campaigns (RICO, BBC), in Large Eddy Simulation (LES) to develop parameterizations for operational ESMs and in the evaluation of the performance of such large scale models. He is currently the coordinator of the ongoing EUCLIPSE FP7 project on cloud-climate feedbacks.
