I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde. Using process-based models, I study the interaction of sedimentary processes with anthropogenic/natural disturbances, ecosystems, and climate.

Research Topics

  • The effects of bottom-trawling and natural disturbances on early diagenesis.
  • Reconstruction of early diagenetic dynamics in the past based on sediment records.
  • Submarine groundwater discharge and cold seep environments.
  • Isotope biogeochemistry.


  • Development of numerical, process-based reaction-transport models.
  • Data handling, various statistical methods, model callibration.
