Dr Philipp C Verpoort
PhD MSc BSc Physics
Climate-mitigation Researcher | Natural Scientist | Deliberation & Sortition Advocate
I am conducting academic research at the Potsdam-Institute for Climate-Impact Research (PIK) on the sustainable energy transition. My research focus is on hydrogen, e-fuels, and energy-intensive goods, and I am modelling their global trade patterns using the REMIND Integrated Assessment Model and related tools. You can find more details on my PIK profile page.
I am a physicist, mathematician, and computer scientist by training and previously completed my PhD in Physics at the University of Cambridge. While a member of the Theory of Condensed Matter (TCM) group there, I studied various phenomena in deep neural networks as well as low-temperature solid-state systems. More details can be found on my profile page on the TCM website.
In my extracurricular activities, I campaign for evidence-based policy making through the use of sortition and deliberation, where I have co-founded the German initiative Klima-Mitbestimmung JETZT and have volunteered and worked for the Sortition Foundation in the UK for several years.
