Christine Kaufhold

Doctoral Researcher

Since May 2022, Christine is a working as a doctoral researcher in the group Long-Term Dynamics of the Earth System (LOTES). Her research focuses on how future (100kyr-1Myr) glacial inceptions will be changed in different anthropogenic CO2 emission scenarios,  and how this will affect nuclear waste storage solutions.

Christine Kaufhold studied Physics at the University of Waterloo, Canada with an emphasis on numerical modelling and environmental systems (e.g., oceanography, geosciences). After completing an internship concerning particle tracking for contaminant transport in the Department of Stochastic Simulation and Safety Research for Hydrosystems at Universität Stuttgart, she went on to finish her MSc. in Ocean and Climate Physics at Universität Hamburg. Her master's thesis was focused on characterizing regimes of weather forecasting uncertainty via explainable AI methods.
