Carl-Friedrich Schleussner is a climate physicist and has received his PhD with distinction at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). His publication record spans a wide range from climate extreme and climate impact projections including water availability and food production to tipping elements and societal implications of climate change. In particular, Carl has focused on science related to 1.5°C degree warming and regional climate impact projections.
From August to December 2013, Carl was postdoc fellow at IRI THESys, and since November 2017 he is back to lead his own research group “Temporal Evolution of Barriers to Adaptation and their Relevance for Climate Related Loss and Damage” (EmBARK), a consortium project with Climate Analytics in Berlin.
