„I have started my PhD in 2015 with the aim to better understand diversity patterns and the spatial heterogeneity of reef assemblages in the Baltic Sea. The focus is on hard-bottom associated epibenthic fauna and vegetation within MPAs in the German exclusive economic zone. I will use a range of approaches, including common sampling by grab, dredge and SCUBA diving, as well as novel high-resolution seafloor imagery with a passive towed platform.”

Research interests:

 

  • Benthic community analysis

  • Temperate rocky reef ecology

  • Marine conservation

  • Monitoring of hard-bottom assemblages

  • Seafloor imagery and image analysis
