Dr Alexander Nauels

Alex has extensive knowledge in climate modelling and coordinates the Science Team efforts in the context of IPCC and UNFCCC activities. His research revolves around strong climate mitigation pathways and the physical implications of further delaying global decarbonisation efforts. While his core expertise is based on the physical science of climate change, he also works on facilitating the way scientific information is compiled and communicated to stakeholders and policy makers.

Alex studied Geography at Humboldt University in Berlin and Climate Science at University of Bern. For his PhD project at the Australian-German Climate and Energy College in Melbourne, he synthesised knowledge about multi-centennial sea level projections and developed a sea level rise module for the simple climate carbon cycle model MAGICC. As a Melbourne University research fellow, he contributed to the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6) effort and continues to be involved in the MAGICC development process. Before starting his PhD, he worked at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group I Technical Support Unit during the Fifth Assessment cycle.
