David Nielsen

I am a Postdoc in the Ocean Biogeochemistry group, currently working in topics related to the Arctic carbon cycle, using global ocean and Earth system models as tools. 

I finished my PhD in 2021 in the Climate Modelling group at Universität Hamburg. Thesis: "An Earth system modelling perspective on Arctic coastal erosion under climate change" [Fulltext]

Projects I am/was involved in:

  • CLICCS A5: The Land-Ocean Transition Zone
  • CLICCS A1: Carbon Dynamics in the Arctic
  • CLICCS A6: Earth System Variability and Predictability
  • EU Horizon 2020 Nunataryuk: Coastal permafrost research, combining modelling and socio-economic analysis, from local communities to the pan-Arctic scale.
