Ronja Hotz is a PhD student at the Land Use Change & Climate Research Group since August 2023. Her current research focuses on understanding and modelling the underlying social processes for land use change using the CRAFTY agent-based modelling framework. She holds a Bachelor Degree in Physics from the Free University Berlin and a Master Degree in Theoretical Physics from the Technical University Berlin.

Previously, Ronja worked at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research where she developed an agent-based social-ecological model in order to investigate social tipping dynamics for the uptake of sustainable agricultural practices. Her research interests include understanding and modelling human behavior, learning and decision making, spreading processes on complex networks and social tipping points for sustainability transformation.
