- Career Development
- Both Polar Regions
Currently, I am leading a Junior Group at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, that investigates the role of gelatinous zooplankton and their impact on changing Arctic ecosystems. This 6year programme will investigate the distribution, diversity, trophic role and resilience of "jellies" using "OMICS" (incl. environmental DNA), optic and acoustic field techniques and modelling.
I am a passionate researcher who would be happy to give advice or brainstorm on career paths, collaborations, public outreach, scientific ideas, internship and field opportunities. Looking forward to hearing from you!
