Prof. Dr. André Butz heads the atmospheric physics branch at the Institute of Environmental Physics at Heidelberg University. He investigates the gaseous and particulate composition of the Earth’s atmosphere with a particular focus on the greenhouse gases (GHG) carbon dioxide and methane. André Butz graduated with a Ph.D. in physics from Heidelberg University in 2006. After postdoctoral positions at the Netherlands Institute for Space Research in Utrecht, and – as a Emmy-Noether fellow – at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, he was appointed professor at Munich University and Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt in 2016. He returned to Heidelberg as a full professor in 2018.
