Associate Scientist

Ph.D. 1989, University of Bonn, Germany
At IOLR since 1994

Research interests:
Biogeochemical processes in the water column and the sediments of freshwater lakes with special emphasis on methane, sulfur and phosphorus cycling. Development and application of in situ techniques for monitoring of hydrochemical parameters and primary productivity.
