Carola Detring graduated in meteorology at FU Berlin. Her master thesis was focused on statistical meteorology. In April 2019 she started working at the DWD at the Meteorological Observatory Lindenberg in the working group on boundary layers. Carola is engaged in the acquisition of wind gusts and turbulence from Doppler lidar measurements.
She is a member of the German Meteorological Society (DMG), and was involved in the establishment of a youth section of the society (jDMG). Since, she has been one of the co-chairs of jDMG, and has a keen interest to build up a national and international network of meteorology ECSs.
