Research interests

Behaviour of redox-sensitive trace metals in recent and ancient aquatic ecosystems like coastal environments (e.g. tidal flats of the southern North Sea) or anoxic basins (e.g. Baltic Sea, Black Sea). In particular, I am interested in transfer reactions between the dissolved and particulate phase and the coupling to microbial and sedimentological processes under changing redox conditions. This includes processes in the open water column and in the sediments (pore water, groundwater).
