Expertise and Main Research Interests

I am a marine biogeochemist and chemical oceanographer. My main field of expertise is research of environmentally relevant gases in the Marine Environment, with special emphasis on the greenhouse gases methane, nitrous oxide, and carbon dioxide, including the inorganic carbon cycle.
