Research Interests:

  • Paleoclimate Modeling
  • The Mesozoic Earth System
  • Impacts of Large Igneous Province Volcanism

PhD Project:

"Earth System Modeling of Critical Steps in the Development of the Mesozoic Greenhouse Climate"

Jan is investigating characteristics of the Mesozoic Earth System, looking at both its long-term evolution as well as short term events.
The goal of this project is to carry out a suite of simulations for different timeslices covering the whole Mesozoic with an Earth System Model.
Besides the general evolution of climate through the Mesozoic, a special focus lies on characteristics of hothouse climates, the evolution of the marine carbon cycle and the Earth Systems sensitivity to volcanic events.
This work is conducted under the supervision of Prof. Michael Wagreich in very close collaboration with Dr. Georg Feulner and colleagues from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

Master's Thesis:

"Modeling the Climatic and Environmental Impact of end-Triassic Volcanism"
