Dr. Sophie Biskop
Senior Project Coordinator and Postdoctoral Researcher at the Geographic Information Science group, Department of Geography at Friedrich Schiller University Jena
Sophie, a geographer, directs her research towards quantifying and assessing the effects of climate change on hydrology in regions most threatened by and vulnerable to climate change, such Southern Africa and high mountain regions. She accomplishes this by combining hydrological modeling with climate modeling output and remote sensing data to evaluate how these changes affect water supply and hydrological extremes such as floods and droughts. Her work is significant in improving our comprehension of hydrological patterns and water balance changes at a catchment-to-regional level, allowing for sustainable management and planning of water demands in a changing environment.
