Tanja Blome, who joined the GERICS team in November 2016, is responsible for the scientific secretariats of the Earth League (EL) and of the Climate Services Partnership (CSP). With a background in meteorology, she conducted a PhD at the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology on permafrost in a regional climate model, moving to the global scale in the following PostDoc.
Her interests in the modelling field comprised effects of the physical processes in the models, e.g. on simulated hydrology. Wanting to move from basic research towards application of science and knowledge transfer, she is happy to support networking and outreach as well as the organisation of workshops and conferences.
