Dr. Jonas Jägermeyr
NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies
New York, NY 10025 USA
I am a postdoctoral climate change scientist and crop modeler. I study food security and global sustainability at NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the Computation Institute at University of Chicago, and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). Using global mechanistic crop modeling, with a special focus on agricultural water management, I address questions related to attaining the SDGs, or how to feed 10 billion people within environmental limits. My latest projects include simulating nuclear winter impacts on global food productivity, and the development of end-of-season yield forecasting systems. I help coordinate the Global Gridded Crop Model Intercomparison (GGCMI), an initiative within AgMIP, and I am the coordinator of the agriculture sector in ISIMIP (Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project). Further information about my research is available on my PIK webpage.
