Andreas Oschlies


Andreas Oschlies is Professor of Marine Biogeochemical Modelling at GEOMAR and the University of Kiel, Germany. Having studied Theoretical Physics at Heidelberg and Cambridge, he moved into Oceanography for a PhD in Kiel and worked as PostDoc in Toulouse, Assistant Professor in Kiel and Professor of Physical Oceanography in Southampton, before becoming head of the Marine Biogeochemical Modelling group in Kiel in 2006. His research interests include the global carbon, nitrogen and oxygen cycles, their sensitivities to environmental change, and the development and quality assessment of numerical models appropriate to investigate these. He was chair of the Collaborative Research Centre "Climate-Biogeochemistry Interactions in the Tropical Ocean" (SFB754) investigating ocean deoxygenation and initiated the Kiel Declaration on Ocean Deoxygenation, and he is co-Chair of the Global Ocean Oxygen Network (GO2NE) and the Global Ocean Oxygen Decade (GOOD) program. He has led the Priority Program “Climate Engineering: Risks, Challenges, Opportunities?” (SPP1689) and currently is co-chair of the German Marine Research Alliance research mission “Marine carbon sinks in decarbonization pathways” (CDRmare).
