Projects per year
My research focusses on the effects of global change on biodiversity, ecosystem functions, and ecosystem services in coastal wetlands. These play an important role in coastal protection and carbon sequestration.
I studied Biology at University of Hannover with a focus on plant ecology. For my Diplom thesis I did a research project on the development of salt marshes after a change in tidal regime on the island Langeoog. To continue working on this ecosystem I moved to the University of Groningen where I did a PhD on livestock grazing as a nature management tool in salt marshes. Afterwards I started a Postdoc at University of Hamburg, where I build my own ‘Coastal Ecology’ research group. During this time I was able to spend time as a visiting scientist at University of Antwerp and Fudan University Shanghai.
