Summary of Expertise

 I am looking for PhD student applications before the January deadline. If you think about applying, please check out earth-system-biogeochemistry.net and get in touch.

Research Interests

My research is motivated by a deep fascination for Earth history. In the age of man-made alteration of the environment it is becoming a high priority to develop a detailed understanding of natural geochemical, biological and physical Earth System processes as well as their respective coupling on various timescales. Therefore, I take a computational approach to reconstruct the biogeochemical evolution of the ocean and atmosphere, with a special emphasis on the global carbon cycle and its relationship to the biological utilization of nutrients in the ocean.
