M.Sc. Manon Glockmann


Manon Glockmann is a doctoral researcher at the University of Potsdam and PIK. Her research focuses on urban development and growth, urban modelling and spatial factors influencing urbanisation. In her thesis she analyses the growth of the global urban land cover to create a model that projects the extent and locations of urban growth in the future. At PIK, she worked on the IMPETUS-Project that addressed the extent to which migration and urbanisation are affected by climate change and  within the CURE-Project which focused on urban resilience.

Manon Glockmann holds a Master's degree in Urban Ecosystem Sciences from the Technische Universität Berlin and wrote her Master thesis about the thermal comfort of passengers inside the Berlin subway system. Prior to this, she completed her Bachelor's degree in Geographical Sciences at Freie Universität Berlin, where her thesis dealt with the detection of green roofs using remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) methods.
