"I am Meike, 26 years old and working with multibeam bathymetry (ship's and AUV data) at mid-ocean ridges within I started my PhD last summer.
I participated in student councils during my university studies and know, how important such work can be. It gave me an idea of how 'the system' works and the possibility to meet a lot of interesting people. So, these are also the reasons, why I got interested in the DokTeam."

"Working in the climate modeling department I analyze the ability of the Kiel Climate Model to simulate El Niño/Southern Oscillation. By being part of the DokTeam I want to contribute to a stronger PhD community at GEOMAR and possibly have an impact on PhD life at our institute."

"After my Bachelor's degree in Biology, which I completed in Mainz I came to GEOMAR for my Master's in Biological Oceanography. Beginning of November 2015 I started my PhD in the working group of Prof. A. Engel in microbial biogeochemistry.
So I'm quite new in the “PhD-System” however I'm happy to help you with any kind of question or advice you have."

"I am 27 years old, moved to Kiel in 2009 and did my Bachelor (Physics of the Earth System) and Master (Climate Physics) in Kiel.  Since October 2015, I am doing my PhD in the department of physical oceanography within FB1. I became part of the DokTeam because I know, how important this work is. I have been in the students council during my Bachelor and Master and really enjoy the work there. Already in our first meeting a lot of good ideas to improve the PhD life on GEOMAR popped up and I cannot wait to turn them into reality!"
