Additional information

Research area

I am a PhD student from Germany, with a big interest in ocean science. I’m studying chemical tracer distribution in the subpolar north Atlantic, from Portugal to Greenland and the Labrador Sea. I want to better understand the pathways and timescales of water mass circulation to be able to provide further information on the future ocean in a changing climate. Therefore, I am using the anthropogenic radionuclides 129I and 236 U as well as the 14C as “atomic buoy” to trace water masses, which are important for our climate.
Further, as a chemist by training, I am fascinated by bridging orders of magnitude in size, from atoms to global scale processes.
