Jasmin S. A. Link

University of Hamburg

Dipl.-Math. Jasmin S. A. Link is a sociologist and mathematician working interdisciplinarily at the Research Group Climate Change and Security (CLISEC), which is part of the Center for Earth System Research and Sustainability (CEN) of the University of Hamburg, Germany. Her main research focus is Mathematical Sociology, with an emphasis on social path-dependent behavior under changing environmental conditions. On the basis of her work on the potential consequences of climate engineering deployment in the EuTRACE project while being hosted by the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, Jasmin has generated transdisciplinary networks of potential consequences of CE that can impact the environmental system, natural resources, human health, and societal stability. Focusing on cascades of potential consequences of stratospheric aerosol injections (SAI), Jasmin emphasizes the important role of transdisciplinary feedback loops. And even for deployment of bioenergy and carbon capture and storage (BECCS), implications on human health as well as risks for economic or social security and biodiversity can be deduced from the related network.
Jasmin S. A. Link (née Kominek) has published several peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on societal impacts of climate change and human-environment interaction. Furthermore, she is co-founder and former board member of the Young Researchers Network on Complex Systems (YRNCS).
