Tobias Braun


Tobias Braun is working as a doctoral researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research since 2019. Under the purview of the DFG-funded project NEMACS (Nonlinear Empirical Mode Analysis of Complex Systems), he is conducting research on the detection of abrupt regime transitions in palaeoclimate proxy time series and on (non)linear spatio-temporal variability in climate and other complex systems. His main focus is centered on further developing and modifying nonlinear time series methodologies in order to account for frequently faced data-related challenges such as uncertainties and irregular sampling. To this extent, he employs methods ranging from recurrence plots over mode decomposition techniques to complex network analysis. Tobias holds a Master's degree in Physics from the University of Duisburg-Essen.
