CURRENT POSITION

2017 – present      Scientist, Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (Kiel, Germany)

I am working at the development of new methods to reconstruct atmospheric pCO2 going back in time using marine calcifying plankton- pteropods and foraminifera, which are present in all oceans. Currently I am establishing a pCO2 calibration using pteropods that have been cultured under a range of pCO2, which I will then implement on pteropod samples from a 10-year sediment trap in the Arctic and on an Arctic sediment core.
