Tobias Geiger studied Physics, Mathematics, and Meteorology in Freiburg (Germany), Nottingham (UK), Kasan (Russia), and Minsk (Belarus). He holds a Master degree in Physics and a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the University of Freiburg, Germany. In 2014 he joined the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Potsdam, Germany as a scientific researcher in the department of Climate Impacts and Vulnerabilities. He specializes in the quantification of direct and indirect economic impacts of meteorological extreme events and their projection under the coeval development under future climate change and socio-economic evolution. He has published several articles in high impact scientific journals, recently co-authored a report by the Asian Development Bank on future climate risks in the Asian Pacific Region, and regularly provides expert contributions for media outlets. His research interests further include impacts of climate change on public health and migration, economic growth modeling, and econometric impact assessment. He is part of the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (www.isimip.org) for which he organizes the tropical cyclone sector.
