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 moving back to 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 leads the Collaborative Research Centre "Climate-Biogeochemistry Interactions in the Tropical Ocean" (SFB754) and the Priority Program “Climate Engineering: Risks, Challenges, Opportunities?” (SPP1689), both funded by the German Research Foundation.
