Ines Sanz Morère

Research Assistant

BACKGROUND

My name is Ines Sanz Morère. I come from Madrid, Spain. I completed my BS+MS at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, with a double degree at the Politecnico di Torino, specializing in Space Engineering. I did my master thesis at Tsinghua University in Beijing on the topic of combustion instabilities in liquid rocket engines and then worked for a year at the European Space Agency Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany supporting Earth observation missions. My hobbies are playing piano, music in general, reading, swimming and playing ice hockey.

RESEARCH

I am a research assistant, pursuing a PhD in aeronautics at LAE since September 2016. I am sponsored for two years by La Caixa fellowship, from Spain, being able to work on independent projects. In particular, I am interested in evaluating contrails and clouds climate impact. As part of my work, I am currently developing a new radiative forcing model for assessing climate effect of overlapping between contrails and between contrails and clouds. Results indicate that overlapping reduces the warming effect of contrails in about a 4% globally.

EXPERTISE

  • Contrails microphysics and climate impact
