Since June 2019 Thea Wübbelmann works as a doctoral student at the Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS). Her research focuses on flood-regulating ecosystem services in urban areas. By means of runoff modelling and the implementation of climate information, she aims to develop and test suitable methods for the assessment of flood-regulating ecosystem services.
Thea completed her Bachelor and Master degree in Physical Geography at the University of Hannover. During her studies she focused on climatology, hydrology and water management as well as on the analysis and visualization of spatial data with geoinformation systems (GIS). In April 2018 Thea came to GERICS for her final research and master thesis. She worked on surface runoff modelling and the evaluation of nature-based solutions using different ecosystem services in a floodplain.
