Dr. Gabriel Medeiros Abrahão is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). He took his bachelor in Agricultural and Environmental Engineering and his doctorate in Applied Meteorology from the Universidade Federal de Viçosa (UFV, Brazil). His main research topics are related to interactions in the Climate-Land-Energy-Water nexus. He has worked in several institutions worldwide, including Purdue University, Tufts University and the University of California, Berkeley, integrating diverse modelling tools and data to approach different questions within this nexus, including remote sensing, process-based Earth System Models, econometric methods and integrated assessment modelling. He has a particular passion for understanding and communicating the effects of Brazilian deforestation to the agriculture and hydrology of the region. His current research focuses on quantifying future pathways of transformation that can keep humanity within the Planetary Boundaries of the natural environment, and on the incorporation of the biophysical impacts of land-use into climate mitigation strategies.
