Lennart's research aims to apply a variety of mathematical methods to climate impact research:
He uses agent based modelling to analyse higher-order effects of economic disruptions, e.g. caused by extreme weather events, on inequality and possible adaptation strategies.
Additionally he is looking for transfers of  financial mathematics methods to climate risk analysis.
