Dr. Benjamin Leon Bodirsky

Senior scientist
Bodirsky

Benjamin Leon Bodirsky is curious about the global land system and food system. What are the large-scale and long-term transitions of these systems? What are the drivers and dynamics behind these changes? What are the spatial patterns? What are the consequences for the environment, dietary health and inequality? And, most of all, how could we create the political conditions for a sustainable food system?

Benjamin works mainly on three topic clusters:

  • Food systems, dietary change, food security and obesity
  • The global nitrogen cycle, greenhouse gas emissions, and planetary boundaries
  • Land systems, agricultural markets, climate impacts, bioenergy and mitigation policies


The unifying element behind these topics is his methodological approach. He enjoys designing and developing quantitative simulation models that combine economic and biophysical dynamics. He is one of the main developers of the open-source land system modelling framework MAgPIE (https://github.com/magpiemodel), the food demand model, and the geospatial data inventory MADRAT.
