Postdoctoral Researcher

Márk Somogyvári is a postdoctoral researcher at the IRI THESys within the project “Climate and Water under Change” (CliWaC). Together with Prof. Dr. Tobias Krüger, he is developing a data-driven meta-model for the Berlin-Brandenburg region, which can be used to help water users and policymakers to cope with water-related effects of climate change in the area.

Márk holds a Master’s degree in geophysics from the Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest and a doctoral degree in earth sciences from ETH Zürich, which he obtained in 2017. After his doctoral studies, Márk was a researcher of the Geo.X Young Academy in the numerical mathematics group at University of Potsdam, then he worked as a research assistant in the hydrogeology group of TU Berlin.

Márk has experience in applied mathematics and in data science with a special interest in interdisciplinary problems and hydrology. His past works involved the development of tomographic inversion methods for geothermal applications, the characterization of fracture networks in hard rock reservoirs and the application of stochastic numerical methods for aquifer characterization.
