Research in my group addresses two interrelated questions. First, how can we mechanistically understand past and potential future changes in the Earth system? Second, how can we use this information to design scientifically sound, economically efficient, and ethically defensible climate risk-management strategies? We analyze these questions by mission-oriented basic research covering a wide range of disciplines such as Earth science, engineering, decision science, statistics, economics, and ethics.
Examples of ongoing projects are:
