New Assistant Professor (Tenure Track)

Fabian Mahrt has joined the Department of Chemistry at 15 March 2024.

Fabian Mahrt, Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University

Fabian received his Ph.D. degree from ETH Zürich (Switzerland) in 2019, where he researched cloud microphysics with a focus on atmospheric ice formation in cirrus clouds and assessing impacts on climate. Since then, Fabian has been a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Colombia (Canada) and the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland), where he studied organic aerosol formation and their physicochemical properties in the laboratory.

In his new position, Fabian will be part of the Center for Chemistry of Clouds, where he will strive to establish a mechanistic understanding of aerosols particles and their interactions with clouds that is critical for climate predictions. As part of this effort his research group will map atmospheric conditions needed to form cloud droplets and ice crystals on aerosol particles.

Welcome to the department, Fabian!
