Peter Hoffmann is a Senior Scientist at GERICS and works within the frame of the Helmholtz-Institut Climate Service Sciences (HICSS) and in cooperation with the Universität Hamburg in the LANDMATE project as well as in the WCRP CORDEX Flagship Pilot Study "LUCAS - Land use and climate across scales". In both projects, he investigates the impact of land-use changes on the European climate with the coupled regional atmosphere-biosphere model system REMO-iMOVE.
Peter Hoffmann received his diploma (2009) and his PhD (2012) from the Meteorological Institute at the University of Hamburg. His research topics were related to urban climate modeling with a focus on the future urban climate. As a post-doc at the CSIRO in Melbourne he conducted and analyzed regional climate projections for Vietnam, Australia, and the South-Pacific. Afterwards he pursued his interest in modeling processes within the earth system at the DWD in Hamburg (waves and ocean circulation) and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Hamburg (cities). In addition, he conducted research on topics related to biometeorology and extreme weather events as well as on the application of statistical methods in climate science.
