The key approach of the main research activities are focused on the process-oriented investigation of separated and connected biogeochemical element cycles with the use of special analytical approaches as stable isotope (S, O, C) and redox-sensitive element partitioning (e.g., S, C, O, P, Fe, Mn, Mo, Ba). It is reflected by the five main research areas:
•    Aquatic Geochemistry
•    Biogeochemistry
•    Stable Isotope Geochemistry
•    Sediment Geochemistry
•    Environmental Geochemistry

Research interests:

My group focuses on the nitrogen cycling processes in the water ecosystem, both in the sediments and in the water column. We study the nitrogen removing processes denitrification and anammox, as well as nitrification, the process that feeds the removal processes, and DNRA, a process that recycles nitrogen within the water ecosystem. We aim at quantifying the rates under various environmental conditions and at understanding the factors that control the processes. The data produced in our group can be used to improve and validate ecosystem models.

Research Interests:

My research focuses on direct and indirect effects of climate-induced variability and change as well as fisheries on the structure and function of marine foodwebs. I am especially interested in the dynamics and interactions of fish and zooplankton populations. Within this field I conduct studies on the effect of trends in physics and zooplankton on recruitment and growth of marine fish populations, and the occurrence and causes of ecosystem reorganizations such as regime shifts and trophic cascades in marine ecosystems. My present research combines statistical analyses of long-term data series, field-based process studies, and modelling techniques. The ultimate goal of my work is the integration of environmental processes into an ecosystem-based management of marine resources.

Research Interests

I am working on the biogeochemistry of nitrogen in coastal and estuarine system. Over the past years the focus on the  working group was on nitrogen fixation and its regulation in the Mekong river plume and in the Baltic Sea. Furthermore we are working on the quantification of losses of nitrogen via denitrification using the IP-method. In the AMBER project we will work again in river plumes but with the focus on the dissolved organic substances.
