Paula Aschenbrenner

Doctoral Researcher
Aschenbrenner

Paula is part of the working group on Adaptation in Agricultural Systems, where she supports the Green Vision Central Asia project and the Agrica project as a PhD student. She analyses changing climate conditions in the project regions working with climate model data and investigating the suitability of climate projections for agricultural modelling. Paula develops a statistical yield model further, aiming at forecasting wheat and cotton yields in Central Asia. A focus of the research is to provide subsequent information to stakeholders and decision makers.

Paula holds a BSc in Physics from the University of Leipzig as well as a MSc in Environmental Science from the University of Copenhagen and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna. Besides working at PIK, Paula is in training to become a process moderator.
