Subsequently he obtained a MSc in Climate Physics and Chemistry at MIT in 2002, and obtained a PhD in Physics at the University of Eastern Finland in 2003. After having held the chair in theoretical meteorology at the University of Hamburg between 2011-2016, since 2017 VL has been professor of statistical mechanics and director of the Centre for the Mathematics of Planet Earth at the University of Reading. He is fellow of the Royal Met. Society and of the Inst. of Math. and Applications. He has authored two books and about 140 papers in peer-reviewed journals in applied mathematics, climate science, climate modelling, statistical mechanics, extreme value theory, dynamical systems, condensed matter physics. VL has been organiser or co-organiser of more than 60 international conferences/workshops/sessions, including programmes at the I. Newton Institute and H. Poincaré Institute and advanced schools in Les Houches and Cargèse, and has given more than 70 invited presentations. He has been member of the editorial board of Nonlinear Processes in Geophysics, Earth System Dynamics, Chaos, Physical Review E, and of two Springer book series. VL has supervised 15 PDRAs, 15 PhD students and more than 15 research students. He is recipient of the 2010 Arne Richter Award and of the 2020 Richardson Medal of the Eur. Geosci.
