PhD Project

Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Ricarda Winkelmann

My research focusses on the interactions between the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica under the scope of future global warming. The aim of my PhD project is to assess the likelihood that a tipping of the Greenland ice sheet influences the tipping potential of the Antarctic ice sheet. Using numerical ice-sheet modelling, I want to answer the question, how such a tipping cascade impacts future seal-level contributions from Antarctica.

At PIK, my dissertation is embedded in the Leibniz project DominoES – Domino Effects in the Earth System: Can Antarctica tip climate policy?, a joint project by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences (GESIS), Cologne.

 


Research Interests

  • Climate and social tipping interactions
  • Antarctic ice sheet / ice shelf modelling
  • Hysteresis of the Antarctic ice sheet
  • Ice sheet stability and future sea-level change
