With her work at GERICS, Juliane El Zohbi contributes to improving the dialogue between climate research and practical applications. Her work focuses on the agricultural sector and rural areas under climate change.
Juliane's work ranges from establishing contacts with societal actors, identifying user requirements and needs for climate service products, to engaging in stakeholder dialogues for the development of prototypical products together with the interdisciplinary GERICS team and key partners from the field.
Currently, Juliane contributes to developing an app for the agricultural sector within the project Net-Zero-2050 of the Helmholtz Climate Initiative. The project deals with strategies and new ways for a CO2-neutral Germany until 2050.
Juliane also works for the ADAPTER project (ADAPT TERrestrial systems). The project supports agriculture in adapting to the changing climate towards a more sustainable, weather and climate resilient agriculture. ADAPTER relies on a close dialogue with key agricultural partners and practitioners.
Previously at GERICS, Juliane has scientifically conducted and administratively coordinated various research tasks, e.g. in the European research project H2020 OPERANDUM (OPEn-air laboRAtories for Nature baseD solUtions to Manage hydro-meteo risks), CLIPC (Constructing Europe's Climate Information Portal) and in several projects of the European climate service provider Copernicus Climate Change Service.
Before joining GERICS, Juliane worked as a researcher in the DOFOCO ('Do forests cool the Earth?') research group at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE) in France. Juliane studied Geography at the Humboldt University of Berlin. She then studied the interactions between vegetation and climate at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. She completed her PhD in 2010 as a member of the International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modelling (IMPRS-ESM) in the field of climate modelling.
