PhD Candidate, Alfred Wegener Institute, Germany
I'm just about to finish my PhD in Geology at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam/Germany. My research focusses on the investigation of landscape changes in permafrost regions. Here, I'm especially interested in using lake sediments as archives to study past environments and carbon dynamics. As I always loved travelling the world, I think I found the perfect profession to explore remote areas, e.g. the Alaskan and western Canadian Arctic, and satisfy my curiosity to understand how our earth has formed but also how it is currently changing. I'm glad to continue working with thaw lakes together with the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
