Last February 2020, I went to Diamond Light Source in UK together with Liane, Dominique and Thaïs to do Fe and As K-edge EXAFS measurements at the I-20 beamline. We were mainly looking at redox-active Fe-bearing minerals and their interactions with arsenic, phosphate and silica. Synchrotron beamtime is always an exciting time for me because … Continue reading EXAFS beamtime at Diamond Light Source
Starting February 2020, I will start as a postdoctoral scientist in my current research group (Interface Geochemistry). I’ll be working on mineral-organic matter interactions in Arctic peat soils for the next 3 years. Looking forward to finally doing fieldwork in Iceland (and potentially Greenland)!

The first part of my defense was a 30-min presentation of my dissertation, covering a brief introduction and the most significant findings … Continue reading I’m now a Doctor (Dr. rer. nat.)!
