Research interests

I take advantage of natural marginal conditions (eg. exposure to LAIW, natural pCO2 gradients) and use them as natural laboratories to investigate physiological and ecological changes. I study environmental fluctuations from the microscale within an organisms' diffusive boundary layer using microsensors to the macroscale by environmental monitoring probes and devices (WTW probes, CTD, ADCP, etc), combine it with ecophysiological investigations as well as evaluation of ecosystem conditions. I also work interdisciplinary and apply geochemical tools to decipher physiological adjustments under present day environmental conditions but also to deduce physiological acclimations throughout their past.
