- PhD Researcher
Zoe Vosberg has been employed at the IVM since October 2013 as a PhD student focusing on land use change interactions with climate change. As part of the LUC4C project and under supervision of Prof. dr. P. H. Verburg she will assess the influences of climate adaptation and mitigation processes on land use change with the aim of implementing these processes into land use modelling.
Zoe completed her Bachelor and Master in Physical Geography at the University of Kiel, Germany. She has a background in coastal geography, climate change impact analysis and natural hazard assessment. In her master thesis she modelled storm surge hazards in the Caribbean using Delft3D and conducted an exposure analysis for the coast of Puerto Rico.
