Biography

Martin Jung is a Research Scholar with the Biodiversity, Ecology, and Conservation (BEC) Research Group. His current research focusses broadly on nexus topics of land-use, socio-economic management practices and biodiversity indicators as well as investigating cost-effective solutions for robust monitoring and planning of conservation interventions for species and ecosystems.

Before joining IIASA in 2019, Dr. Jung completed a PhD at the University of Sussex (UK), where he focused on quantifying the impacts of land change on biodiversity globally by combining remote sensing time series and large databases of local biodiversity data. Prior to that he obtained an MSc from the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, University of Copenhagen (Denmark) and an BSc from the University of Marburg (Germany), both with an explicit focus on the impacts of anthropogenic pressures on biodiversity.

Besides science, Dr. Jung enjoys cooking, hiking the mountains and forests of this world, playing badminton, and occasionally running long-distance competitions.
