Nele Gloy

Scientist, Project Coordinator

Nele is a member of the working group “Adaptation in Agricultural Systems”. She coordinates various projects, conducts research on the impacts of climate change in agriculture and evaluates adaptation strategies for smallholder farmers in especially Sub-Saharan Africa. Her research focus is on different approaches for crop modelling to assess climate change impact on cash crops under current and projected climate conditions and develop agroecological adaptation strategies.
