Kevin Wolf is a research scientist at the NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado. His previous research focused on airborne measurements of spectral irradiance and radiance, which were used for passive cloud remote sensing and the evaluation of numerical weather prediction models. On basis of this work, Kevin obtained his PhD in April 2020 at the University of Leipzig and joined the Cloud, Aerosol, and Climate group of Graham Feingold in October 2020, where he works within the Atmospheric Science for Renewable Energy (ASRE) project. He investigates the influence of shallow cumulus cloud fields and their three-dimensional cloud radiative effects on the downwelling radiation. His affiliation at NOAA / CIRES is a joint project with the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at CU Boulder, where he works in the radiation group of Sebastian Schmidt.

A more detailed description of his previous and upcoming work can be found on his CIRES researches webpage.
