Welcome to the Homepage of the Climate Laboratory

My name is Christian Franzke and I am a scientist with a broad interest in climate science. Currently my research focuses on understanding climate variability across scales, climate change, extreme weather and climate events, weather and climate risks, and the economics of climate change. I am also teaching on those topicsChristianFranzke Copyright Christian Franzke. In particular, I developed a new and unique class on Weather and Climate Risks. In this class I combine the physical with the socio-economic aspects of weather extremes and climate change. I am also a PI of TRR 181 in which we aim to develop better climate models by  improving their representation of conserved quantities and subgrid-scale processes. I am also one of the founders of the PAGES working group CVAS (Climate Variability across Scales) where we try to better understand and model past and future climate variability. I am also active in organizing EGU activities; I am a officer in the Nonlinear Processes division and active in our outreach team.

I am an editor of Earth System Dynamics,
