I am currently working as postdoctoral scientist (since February 2020) at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, working together with Prof. Liane G. Benning (Interface Geochemistry).

My postdoctoral research focuses on molecular scale mineral-organic matter interface processes in Arctic soils. In addition, I am also studying the formation and transformation of iron-bearing minerals, and their influence on the cycling of nutrients (e.g., P, Si) and toxic elements (e.g., As, Cr) in oxygen-poor modern and ancient environments.

I combine several analytical approaches from geochemistry, materials and analytical chemistry, and nanoscience to gain better understanding of iron (bio)geochemistry at the nano- to atomic-scale.

We just finished our first fieldwork in Iceland, collecting soil and water samples to study mineral-organic matter interactions. Looking forward to processing the samples. #RustyCarbonSink

I’m going to Tolouse, France this fall thanks to the Procope Mobility Grant. I will work with Dr. Romain Guilbaud at CNRS Géosciences Environnement Toulouse (GET) to study phosphorus geochemistry in modern and ancient environments.
