Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Peter Greve joined IIASA’s Water (WAT) program as a Research Scholar in November 2016. He will contribute to the program’s activities by providing a climate-focused perspective both on the use and the development of the Community Water Model specifically, and the integrated assessments at IIASA in general.
His main research interest is the interface of climate and hydrological science. During his time at ETH Zurich (Switzerland) as a Postdoctoral Researcher/PhD student, he aimed to identify and quantify historical and projected trends of water availability and aridity and their associated uncertainties by using a comprehensive collection of datasets and climate models. He is also interested in the further development and use of the popular conceptual Budyko framework in the context of hydroclimatological assessments.
Dr. Greve received his PhD from ETH Zurich in 2015, for his work on the topic of understanding and characterizing past, present and future hydroclimatological change. He also holds a diploma in Meteorology from Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel, Germany.
Dr. Greve has been the recipient of a number of fellowships and awards including the European Geosciences Union (EGU) Outstanding Student Poster (OSP) Award in 2014 and the Short term fellowship for doctoral students awarded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
