Andreas Oschlies is a Professor of Marine Biogeochemical Modelling at the University of Kiel and Head of the Biogeochemical Modelling Research Unit at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel. 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 in Southampton. His research interests include the global carbon, nitrogen and oxygen cycles, their sensitivities to environmental change, and the development of numerical models appropriate to investigate these. He is PI of the Excellence Cluster "The Future Ocean", speaker of the Collaborative Research Centre "Climate-Biogeochemistry Interactions in the Tropical Ocean" (SFB754) and coordinator of the DFG Priority Program “Climate Engineering: Risks, Challenges, Opportunities?” (SPP1689). He was awarded the Georg-Wüst Prize in 2011.
