Hi, I’m Marc, a complex systems scientist interested in studying how human behavior, individual and collective, affects environmental change and vice versa. I hold a PhD in theoretical physics with a background in complex system’s studies, time series analysis, complex network theory and data science. I’m an alumni of the Humboldt-University of Berlin, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Complexity Science Department of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.


26 Apr. ‘21: Our paper in The European Physical Journal Special Topics shows that anticipation of future environmental damages can lead to metastable states of collective behaviour.

18 Mar. ‘21: Our new preprint investigates dose-responses functions to characterize spreading processes in the Copenhagen Networks Study data set.

12 Feb. ‘21: New paper in Frontiers in Climate which provides a spatially explicit and global overview on precipitation responses to different types of the El Niño–Southern Oscillation.

05 Nov. ‘20: I appeared at the Scientists for Future Podcast to discuss social and natural tipping elements as well as their potential interactions. The full episode (in German) is available on the S4F website , iTunes and Spotify.
