Caroline works to advance the current state-of-the-art in mesoscale modeling as it specifically pertains to wind energy. Caroline uses mesoscale models to research wind resources in various countries, and participates in on- and offshore boundary layer research and in the coupling of the mesoscale flow features (kilometer scale) to the microscale (tens of meters). Further areas of interest include solar energy, Large Eddy Simulations (LES), and data assimilation for renewable energies.
