Kasia Tokarska is a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich climate physics group, exploring climate-carbon interactions and how they change under anthropogenic influence. Her recent work focuses on estimates of the remaining carbon budgets for the Paris Agreement target and quantifying associated uncertainties. Kasia has a background in physics and economics, which proved to be an effective fit for the field of climate modelling and analysis. She is also interested in applying interpretable statistical and machine learning methods for climate data analysis, and is a core member of the Climate Change AI initiative.
Kasia holds a PhD from the University of Victoria in Canada, where she worked with climate models of different complexity, exploring various aspects of the carbon budgets framework. She also researched the role of negative emissions (artificial carbon dioxide removal from the atmosphere) in the reversibility of the Earth System, and detection and attribution of anthropogenic climate change from the observed record.
