Hi there! Here I am: sedimentologist and paleoclimatologist by training, carbonate geochemist by choice, natural scientist by passion.

I am the head of Continental Carbonate Geochemistry group at Ruhr University Bochum. My team focuses on lacustrine and palustrine settings, stalagmites, lately we took up vivid interest in land and aquatic snails. We are interested in how the environmental signal is recorded in sedimentary carbonates (inorganic and biogenic) and we combine information from geochemical and ecological proxies. We are a young, dynamic group always open for new possibilities and keen to try new approaches!
