Welcome to my personal website!
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.
