Xiaoxiao Zhao joins the group as our second PhD student. She will work on reconstructing changes in the nitrogen cycle during the Paleogene.
Chris Rosendahl joins the group as our first PhD student. He will be working on carbon and hydrogen stable isotope fraction in archaea and their application to paleoclimate reconstructions.
Jan Kleint joined the group as a Postdoc. Based at MARUM in Bremen, he will be working on the construction of a moving wire microcombustion system for high-precision analysis of intact GDGTs.
I am honored to have received the Pieter Schenck Award at #IMOG2021. https://eaog.org/pieter-schenk-awards/
We just launched the HYDROCARB project, which is funded by the DFG through the Emmy Noether program. Within the project we aim to develop novel paleoclimate proxies based on the carbon and hydrogen isotopic compositions of archaeal lipids. Check out our Projects page for more information. PhD and postdoctoral position will become available soon andContinue reading “Launch of the HYDROCARB project”
