Hi, my name is Jan Blöthe. Since October 2014, I am working as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Geomorphology and Environmental Systems working group at the University of Bonn, Germany. My primary research interests are in the field of sediment dynamics, natural hazards, remote sensing, and geomorphometry.

I received my PhD in 2014 from the University of Potsdam, where I worked with Oliver Korup on valley fills and large landslides in the Himalayas.
