Co-chair, Future Earth Risk Knowledge-Action Network
Jana Sillmann is a Geo-ecologist (MSc) and specialized in analyses of climate extremes in climate models (PhD, IMPRS ESM, Hamburg). Jana has done work related to various factors that can drive changes in climate extremes, such as climate variability and anthropogenic activities (e.g., greenhouse gases and air pollution), and evaluation of climate model simulations. In her current research, she uses interdisciplinary approaches for better integration of natural and social sciences. Particularly, she is interested in relating physical and statistical aspects of climate extremes to socio-economic impacts and questions related to risk assessment and decision making.
