Laura Niggli

PhD student

University of Zurich


I completed my studies in geography at the University of Fribourg (BA) and the University of Zurich (MSc) and I’ve worked in the Chilean and the Colombian Andes. The focus of my interdisciplinary Master Thesis in the Cordillera Oriental of the Colombian Andes was on climate change impacts and adaptation. I am a member of the Knowledge for Climate network for climate change adaptation, research and education. Currently I am contributing to the IPCC Assessment Report 6 on key risks in mountain regions.
