Dr. Dmitry Kovalevsky works in the GERICS Department “Coasts, Cities and Regions”. Since 2019, Dmitry Kovalevsky is a Co-PI of the MUCCCS project on coastal urban adaptation and coastal climate services conducted within the framework of the Helmholtz Institute for Climate Service Science (HICSS). Beyond project coordination, he actively contributes to MUCCCS implementation with developing coastal urban models. Dmitry also conducts research in atmospheric science on detection and analysis of atmospheric rivers from REMO model simulations.
Previously, in 2017-2019, Dmitry was working at GERICS on the EU H2020 IMPREX project, with the major area of responsibility in developing integrated system dynamics models for climate adaptation. At that time, he also contributed to the implementation of the EU H2020 NAIAD project focussed on nature-based solutions.
Dmitry graduated from St. Petersburg State University, Russia (Faculty of Physics, Department of Statistical Physics) and received his PhD in Oceanography from Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI, St. Petersburg). He also got qualification of Manager in Public Administration at St. Petersburg State University of Engineering and Economics. Prior to joining GERICS, Dmitry conducted research in economics of climate change and in economic modelling at the Nansen International Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre (NIERSC, St. Petersburg) and at the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre (NERSC, Bergen, Norway). He worked as a project coordinator for several national projects, and participated in a number of international projects, including EU FP7 COMPLEX and EU FP7 EuRuCAS projects. Dmitry’s long-lasting research co-operation with Prof. Klaus Hasselmann, Founding Director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, in transdisciplinary modelling within the context of climate change problems, includes close collaboration within EU FP7 COMPLEX and EuRuCAS projects and many other joint activities.
Dmitry Kovalevsky is the Editor for the Journal of Environmental Accounting and Management and an Associate Editor for Discontinuity, Nonlinearity, and Complexity.
