Reinhard Prestele

Reinhard Prestele is a postdoctoral researcher in the Land Use Change and Climate research group at IMK-IFU, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. His current research focuses on the interactions of climate, land-use change and bumblebees. He uses state-of-the-art integrated modeling approaches to identify most endangered European bumblebee species under global change impacts and to develop management strategies that minimize these impacts.

Reinhard has a background in Geoecology and a broad research interest in the interactions and feedbacks between the land system and the climate system, including the prospects and challenges of a transition towards a sustainable agricultural future. Before arriving at KIT Reinhard was working on high-resolution land-surface modeling and satellite data integration at the Department of Geography, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. During his PhD he was working on the identification and quantification of uncertainty in global land-use modeling, the representation of land change processes in environmental assessment models, and land-based climate change mitigation through agricultural management. He contributed to the EU-FP7 project LUC4C (Land use change: assessing the net climate forcing, and options for climate change mitigation and adaptation) and obtained his PhD from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam with a dissertation entitled Linking land use and climate: the key role of uncertainty and spatial location.
