Clemens Schwingshackl studied physics in Graz and Heidelberg. In 2018, he got a PhD from ETH Zurich where he investigated how interactions between the land surface and the atmosphere affect air temperatures. Since 2019 he is working at CICERO where he analyses the consequences of climate change for human heat stress.


  • Exhaustion Air pollution is currently the largest environmental killer in Europe, causing 500,000 premature deaths annually. Heatwaves can make air pollution more lethal and cause more heart and lung diseases. Together with Universitetet i Oslo (UiO) the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and 11 other European institutions CICERO will help increase European resilience towards climate change.
