About Me

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.

Projects

The MACRO project investigates lake and swamp sediments from Pacific Islands to search for traces of the settlement of Polynesians and Melanesians.
The PALEOFARM project investigates sediments from 3 lakes across Switzerland, Russia and Greenland to search for traces of early farming impact.
