Prof. Dr Mark Lawrence is scientific director at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam, focusing on a range of sustainable development topics at the science-policy and science-society interface, including mitigating the impacts of short-lived climate-forcing pollutants (SLCPs), and on the potential impacts, uncertainties, and risks of climate engineering.
Prof. Dr Lawrence received his PhD in 1996 from the Georgia Institute of Technology. From 2000 until 2011, he was a research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz. He served as interim professor for meteorology at the University of Mainz from 2009 to 2010, and moved to the IASS in 2011. In 2014, he was appointed Honorary Professor at the University of Potsdam.
Prof. Dr Lawrence is author or co-author of over 130 peer-reviewed publications. He has led various international projects, has served as editor for two journals (Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics; Atmospheric Environment), and serves on several international committees as well as being co-chair of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry program (IGAC).
