Bernhard Schauberger is a PhD student of agricultural economics at PIK Potsdam and HU Berlin in Germany. He is a guest researcher at LSCE since November 2016. He studied bio-informatics at TU Munich and worked as a renewable energy consultant afterwards. His dissertation, started in 2014, analyses the impact of climate extremes on crop production and how this affects food security.
Bernhard will present selected topics from his current research. The talk comprises four parts. The first part introduces an advanced regression analysis of combined heat and water stress in US staple crops. The second part of the talk describes a robust semi-empirical modelling scheme to detect climate influences on maize and wheat yields. The third part introduces a novel network-based method for systematic literature reviews. The fourth and final part describes an approach to study ozone damages in global staple crops.
