Research interests

 
My research focus lays on the influence of environmental and anthropogenic parameters on microbial communities in marine waters. In particular, I am interested in the diversity, structure and function of microbial biofilms on microplastics in the ocean.
 
With the Leibniz project MikrOMIK we approached the question, whether microplastics in the Baltic Sea are a vector for pathogenic microorganisms. Our current project BONUS MICROPOLL represents a multilevel assessment of microplastics, associated pollutants and biofilms in the Baltic Sea.
