Scientific Interests

Development and usage of novel isotope geochemical tools in palaeoceanographic and palaeoclimate research, as well as applications in relation to current human-induced ocean acidification. A significant proportion of this work involves dedicated calibration of new marine archives.

My main research interests include

  • Investigations of carbon cycle perturbations in the marine realm such as experienced during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum using seawater-pH-sensitive methods (boron isotopes)
  • The reconstruction of climate-dependent continental runoff fluxes of certain trace metals (e.g., lead, hafnium) into intermediate- and high-latitude oceans on glacial-interglacial timescales
  • Identification of short- and long-term perturbations or changes in shallow- and deep marine circulation using neodymium isotopes in authigenic phases of marine sediments, fish teeth, foraminifera or cold water corals.
