M.Sc. Manon Glockmann

Doctoral Researcher

Manon Glockmann is a doctoral researcher at the Universität PotsdamAt PIK, she worked on the project “IMPETUS - Climate Change Impacts on Migration and Urbanization” that addressed the extent to which migration and urbanization are affected by climate change. Her focus is on the urbanization, where she analyzes the growth of the global urban land cover to create a model that projects the extent and locations of urban growth in the future.

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).
