Juliane Schwendike is a lecturer in Meteorology and joined the school in December 2014. Prior to this
Juliane was a Research Fellow at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, where she investigated
local Hadley and Walker circulations and how they have changed during the last 30 years. Julianes’s
PhD was on convection in an African easterly wave over West Africa and the eastern Atlantic, where
she looked at the formation of Hurricane Helene (2006). Juliane also investigated how mineral dust
was transported towards the developing storm. Additionally, Juliane is interested in the boundary layer
winds of tropical cyclones.
