Dr Kamil Mroz

NCEO Radiation and Rainfall Scientist


I received the M.S. degree in mathematics from the University of Bialystok Poland in 2010 and the Ph.D. degree from Loughborough University U.K. in 2014.

In 2015 I joined the National Centre for Earth Observation at University of Leicester where I work as a Radiation and Precipitation Scientist.


My research interests include liquid and solid precipitation cloud microphysics and microwave remote sensing.
