Patrick is a meteorologist with a background in physics who will be working on the automatic weather station at Petzenkirchen. He has a keen interest in many different areas of atmospheric physics, having done projects ranging from synoptic meteorology and weather forecasting to modelling the temperature of the mesosphere from the spectra of hydroxyl radicals in the airglow.
Patrick obtained a bachelors degree in Physics with Astrophysics from the National University of Ireland Maynooth with a project focus on mesospheric physics. He then completed a Master of Science degree in Meteorology and Climate at University College Dublin with a thesis on the development and enhancement of an automatic weather station run by the Meteorology Department.
