Hi, I am Julia Kaltenborn!
I am a Master’s student at McGill / Mila supervised by David Rolnick. My research aims to advance climate science and earth models with the help of machine learning.
Since I am particularly fascinated by our cryosphere, I used machine learning to automatize snow stratigraphy classification in my bachelor thesis. Currently, I am working on a project to accelerate and improve extra-tropical cyclone prediction. My research at Mila will focus on enhancing current climate models with machine learning.
Furthermore, I am a DeepMind Scholar, Mitacs Globalink Graduate Fellow, and the German Academic Scholarship Foundation supports me.
Besides my research, I try to give something back to nature and our community. I was a volunteer at Greenpeace for several years, and I am a co-founder of the German initiative Unser Dialog.
