Martin Jung is currently a Postdoctoral Research Scholar with the Ecosystem Services and Management program (ESM) at IIASA, where he is working on the Nature Map project. His current research helps to develop global integrated maps of biodiversity and ecosystem services, such as carbon storage. His main research interests center on the use and development of quantitative assessments of biodiversity change and effective conservation options globally, as well as the broader disciplines of remote sensing, macroecology and environmental science.
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.
