Master and Bachelor students interested in a thesis about Solar Geoengineering, High-resolution modelling, and complexity in (climate) economics are very welcome to make contact! 

For an impression on possible projects, see the list of previous and ongoing projects below, and the description of my research on the profile page


Past and ongoing theses
