Dr. Tabea Lissner

Scientific Advisor

Dr Lissner is on maternity leave

Tabea supports the Science Team at Climate Analytics in the field of climate impacts, vulnerability and adaptation. She has been working on analysing climate change impacts on societal sectors for several years. Her work focuses on the analysis of human-environmental systems, using conceptual as well as quantitative modelling approaches and spatial analysis methods. A special interest lies in understanding the processes and interaction of the many determinants, which make human-environmental systems especially vulnerable to climate change. In this context, she works on translating the various determinants of vulnerability into methods, which advance the comparability and transferability of results between regions and which provide useful information to stakeholders and decision-makers in especially vulnerable regions.

Tabea has a background in Geography, Political Science and Environmental Management and holds a PhD in Geography from Humboldt University, Berlin, which she developed while working as a junior researcher in the Climate Change & Development Group at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). She remains affiliated with PIK as a guest scientist and is the author of several peer-reviewed publications.
