My research spans across the boundaries of sedimentology, paleolimnology, paleoclimatology, inorganic and organic geochemistry. The main reason for this broad spectrum is that I enjoy combining different methods and tools to tackle a question from different angles.
The research projects I have been developing since joining the Eawag in 2013 revolve around two central themes:
(1) The generation of new high-resolution paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental reconstructions using lake sediments, with a focus on first human impacts on aquatic ecosystems.
(2) The translation of water column processes into sedimentary signatures, in particular through the use of sediment traps to track depth-dependent dissolution and sediment focusing in lakes.
I welcome new collaborations both nationally and internationally.
