Portrait image of Alexis Berne

Alexis Berne is active in the field of radar meteorology, with a focus on solid precipitation in mountainous and polar regions. Combining polarimetric radar, in-situ measurements, stochastic and numerical modeling, his research activities aim to unravel the interplay between complex terrain, atmospheric dynamics and precipitation microphysics, in order to better understand the factors driving precipitation as well as to improve quantitative precipitation estimation. Alexis Berne received his PhD from Université Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, France, in 2002, and was a Marie Curie postdocoral fellow at Wageningen University, The Netherlands, from 2003 to 2006. He joined EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, as Assistant Professor in 2006, heading the Environmental Remote Sensing Laboratory since, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2013.
