Short biography: Franziska Gerber was always interested in snow and ice, which was part of her work throughout the years. Snow distributions and small-scale wind fields in complex terrain were the topic of her PhD at EPFL Lausanne and the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF (Davos). She continued her work at SLF Davos on blowing snow over Antarctica as a PostDoc. In April 2021 she joined the wind and ice team at Meteotest AG, where she extended her horizon to icing of wind turbines. When not at work she can be found on skis in winter, hiking or cycling in summer or chasing shuttles on the badminton court throughout the year.
