Assistant Scientist at ICBM
Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM)/ Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg
The focus of my research is on the investigation of complex coastal surface currents and how pollutants are transported at the ocean’s surface. Using Lagrangian and Eulerian current measurements, I analyse the dispersion of pollutants and their impact on marine ecosystems.
The core of my research activities are measurements with satellite tracked surface drifters to understand the complex transport and time scales of circulation in the Beagle Channel and of the Cape Horn Current.
