Martin Trauth was born in Landau/Pfalz in 1963 and studied geophysics and geology at the University of Karlsruhe. He obtained a doctoral degree at Kiel University in 1995 and then became a permanent member of the scientific staff and lecturer at the University of Potsdam. Following his Habilitation in 2003, he became Privatdozent at the same university. Since 1990 he has worked on various aspects of historical climate changes in East Africa and South America. His projects aim to understand the role of the tropics in terminating ice ages, the relationship between climate changes and human evolution, and the influence that climate anomalies had on mass movements in the Central Andes. All of these projects include the application of MATLAB- based numerical and statistical methods, such as time-series analysis and signal processing on paleoclimate time series, lake-balance modeling, stochastic modeling of bioturbation, and image processing on laminated sediments. Martin Trauth has been teaching various courses on data analysis in earth sciences for more than ten years, both at the University of Potsdam and at other European universities.
