Niklas is a Climate Policy Analyst whose current work mainly focuses on the Climate Action Tracker. He has a special interest in econometrics, data analysis and data visualisation using open source software.
From 2012 he was a member of research staff at Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). He contributed in the creation of a new set of scenarios of income and population in the 21st century – the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) – which facilitate accounting for uncertainty in future social and economic development. These scenarios are used to harmonise several integrated assessment models of climate change (IAMs) in order to make their results comparable. Niklas also participated in improving data input and and analysis of results of PIK’s own IAM – the REMIND model.
Since May 2015 he is a guest at PIK. He holds a diploma in economics from the University of Hohenheim and is pursuing a PhD at the Technical University Berlin.
