Early Career Scientists

About two third of all EGU General Assembly participants are Early Career Scientists (ECS). This vital part of the scientific community is what this website is devoted to. Through the ECS representatives you can have a voice across the EGU realm. On this website we keep you up to date and inform you about our goals and communication channels.



Recap EGU2020

Who we are

Aayush Andrea Madella

Andrea is a tectonic geomorphologist at University of Tübingen, Germany. He works as a Postdoc on surface expressions of seaward-concave subduction zone geometry. Andrea has been enjoying and benefiting from the EGU annual meeting ever since 2013 and is very happy with the way things go in the union and now feels to be ready to get his hands dirty to work as GM ECS representative. He is looking forward to do his share with an open-minded and social spirit.

Aayush Aayush Srivastava

Aayush is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of St. Andrews, with background in luminescence dating and aeolian geomorphology. Currently, he is investigating the terraced landscapes in the Mediterranean region in the context of establishing an environmentally sustainable land-use strategy for rural communities. Having benefitted from EGU’s annual meetings in the past, he aims to represent diverse voices of fellow young geomorphologists in the Division’s decision-making processes and activities. Follow him on Twitter (aayushgeo) for recent updates about his work.

Annegret Larsen

Annegret is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Wageningen, Netherlands. Her research broadly covers sediment transport on hillslopes, fluvial systems and the linkages between them. Most recently, she is working on biogeomorphic feedbacks in streams and floodplains. Annegret has been (co-) convening several sessions at the EGU annual meeting. Annegret is also part of the women in geoscience network and passionate about diversity in geoscience.

Edwin Baynes

Edwin is a lecturer in physical geography at Loughborough University in the UK, having recently been a postdoc in New Zealand and France. His research broadly covers understanding and quantifying the physical processes that drive changes in river morphology, including waterfall erosion, strath terrace formation and the impact of extreme flood events. He can usually be found in the analogue modelling laboratory, or exploring remote field sites in Iceland or New Zealand! Follow Edwin on twitter (@EdwinBaynes) for the latest updates on his work.

Eric Pohl

Eric is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland. He works on various aspects of cold region landscapes related to climate change and variability. A central point of his work is the numerical modeling of the hydrological cycle, and the heat transfer from the atmosphere into the ground in permafrost regions. Ultimately, he aims for a better understanding of climate-landscape interactions.
