Milan Kloewer

Graduate Student (DTP)

I received my BSc in Physics of the Earth System from the University of Kiel, Germany in 2013. After a year at Université de Bretagne Occidentale in France, where I studied physical oceanography in the MSc Marine Physics programme, I returned to Kiel and obtained my MSc degree in Climate Physics in 2017. During that time I spent a winter in Svalbard, studying the Arctic Atmospheric Boundary Layer and also crossed the Tropical Atlantic on a research vessel and worked as a researcher at the University of Oxford.
