Daniel Lincke studied Computer Science at the Friedrich-Schille-University Jena and graduated in 2003 (Diploma). After working two years in an industrial researched company he became a PhD student at PIK in 2006. After finishing his PhD (supervised at the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg) in 2012 he joined GCF as a scientific programmer, where his strong knowledge of different programming paradigms and languages is used in different projects. Currently he is involved in the Adaptation and Social Learning process, where he is responsible for application and further development of the DIVA model. From October 2015 - March 2016 he was visiting scientist at State Key Laboratory of Earth Surface Processes and Resource Ecology (Beijing Normal University), where he was working on an application of DIVA for the entire coast of China. Since 2017 he is also affiliated with the Cluster of Excellence "The Future Ocean" "The Future Ocean" at Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (CAU).
