Data Analysis (Biomineralization & Microstructure)
Studies: Marine Geoscience (M. Sc.)
A foraminifera in a rocket under microgravity with interesting measurement methods? When Katrin told me about this project I could not resist and gave an assurance to become part of it.
My specialisation in my graduate program “marine geoscience” at University of Bremen is the field of biogeochemistry. One of my favourite topics during my undergraduate program of geoscience at University of Vienna was biomineralization – how is an organism able to transport environmental elements from one place to another by forming complexes? To counteract this with microgravity is an exciting idea in my opinion. Preparing the samples, analysing them and especially measuring with nanoSIMS make this project a great experience. I am looking forward for the first results!
