Georg Feulner holds a master’s degree in theoretical physics from the University of Cambridge (UK) and a diploma degree in physics from the University of Munich (Germany). He obtained his PhD in physics at the University of Munich in 2004 with a thesis in the area of observational cosmology. Since 2006 he works at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), where he became a senior scientist and working group leader in 2012. He teaches at the University of Potsdam where he obtained his Habilitation in 2018. Georg's research focuses on climate modelling, deep-time paleoclimatology (in particular the climate on early Earth, Snowball Earth episodes, past greenhouse climates and climate changes during mass-extinction events) as well as present and future climate change.

My research in climate science covers a broad range of topics. These include investigations of the modern and future Earth system, for example relating to the stability of the Atlantic overturning circulation (in collaboration with Stefan Rahmstorf), to the influence of solar activity on climate change, and to climate-vegetation feedbacks, but most of my research is focused on understanding Earth’s climate history and its relevance for the future. I am particularly interested in planetary habitability, the co-evolution of Earth’s climate and the biosphere, as well as past hothouse climate states and their relevance for our future in a warming world. In terms of methodology, my research is primarily based on numerical models of the coupled Earth system, complemented by data analysis and theoretical arguments.
