About Me

Research interest


  • Hypolimnetic oxygen depletion based on the assessment of sediment porewater fluxes, oxygen fluxes and organic carbon sediment accumulations
  • Change of oxygen consumption linked to lake remediation effords
  • Dynamic behaviour of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous

Function

Postdoctoral Researcher in the group Sensors and Analytic


Major Research Area :

  • Analysis of sediment porewater using capillary electrophoresis
  • Sediment oxygen demand attributed to the fluxes of reduced substances
  • Analysis of sediment and sediment trap data
  • Modelling of early diagenetic processes in Lake sediments
  • Development of a Ruthenium based Micro-Titrator

Projects

Mineralization of organic matter in sediments produces reduced substances that consume oxygen in the bottom waters. Comparison of nutrient-rich and nutrient-poor lakes.
