CV  (Prof. Dr. Britta Jänicke)

Since March 2022, Prof. Dr. Britta Jänicke is head of the Chair of Environmental Meteorology at the Institute of Landscape Architecture and Landscape Planning in the ASL Department. The newly established Chair of Environmental Meteorology addresses both basic and applied research in urban climatology and environmental meteorology. Britta Jänicke studied landscape architecture and landscape planning (BSc.) and urban ecology (MSc.) at the Technical University of Berlin. Her PhD also took place at TU Berlin with a focus on urban climate and heat stress. In South Korea, she was a postdoctoral researcher at the National Institute of Meteorological Sciences, studying the urban climate of the megacity Seoul. Through her work as head of the department of climate protection and strategic environmental planning at the city of Braunschweig, she brings not only scientific but also practical experience to research and teaching at the University of Kassel.
