Coastal Risks and Sea-Level Rise Research Group
Jan started to study economics and changed to geography after completing his first degree. He obtained his BSc (2012) and MSc (2014) at Kiel University, specializing in environmental analysis and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). For his bachelor thesis he used a GIS approach to estimate the potential power generation from onshore wind turbines for the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein. In his master thesis he assessed the impact of a 100y storm surge on population and assets in Tampa Bay, Florida. In April 2014 Jan joined the CRSLR research group to do his PhD.
Jan is involved in the FP7 project RISES-AM (Responses to coastal climate change: Innovate Strategies for high End Scenarios – Adaptation and Mitigation). His research focus lies on risk assessment. In particular, Jan analyses population changes in the low elevation coastal zone (LECZ). He aims to develop projections for future coastal population to assess the impact of climate change on future coastal communities.
