I analyze the impacts of a changing climate on migration and urban conflict dynamics in agricultural countries. I focus on the questions:

  • “Who migrates in response to more frequent weather anomalies and what are the destinations?”
  • “Under which circumstances does climate change-induced migration lead to conflict in urban areas?”
  • “How well can Twitter data serve to predict urban conflict in the context of extreme weather events?”

My Ph.D. is funded by a doctoral scholarship of Heinrich Böll Stiftung.
