Dr Alexander Popp


Alexander Popp is a Senior Scientist at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and leads a research group on Land-Use Management as well as the PIK activity on Land Use. He coordinates the development of the global land-use model ‘Model of Agricultural Production and its Impacts on the Environment’ (MAgPIE), which over the last years has evolved into one of the world’s leading integrated global land and water use modelling systems. Alexander Popp contributes to several international climate, biodiversity and land-use assessments such as IPCC (e.g. Lead author for SR on Land, Lead author for AR6) and IPBES. Since 2019, he has been an Associate Deputy Editor of the journal Climatic Change. Alexander Popp has published more than 100 peer reviewed scientific articles and is ranked by Web of Science among the 1% most influential scientists in the world due to his highly relevant publications in scientific literature. He was listed among the World's forty most influential climate scientists and for Germany in the top 3 on the Reuters Climate Hot-List.
