I currently work at the Department of Marine Geology and Paleontology, Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research. My research interests lies in Geology, Oceanography and Paleoclimatology.

Research interests

The current focus of my project is 'Deglacial-Holocene variability in sea ice formation, melt-water discharge, primary productivity and abrupt climate change in Baffin Bay and West Greenland.'.I use spe­ci­fic bio­mar­kers in­di­ca­ti­ve for sea ice (IP25, PIP25), pri­ma­ry pro­duc­tion and ter­ri­ge­nous in­put (n-al­ka­nes, ste­rols, al­keno­nes) as well as com­pound-spe­ci­fic sta­ble iso­topes (dD of al­gae) as pro­xy for mel­twa­ter di­sch­ar­ge.

Research program
