Academic teaching

Bio-Geo-Colloquium (WS and SS), in English

In a weekly lecture series lecturers report on their research on the manifold interactions in the systems atmosphere, plant, soil, and groundwater. The lecture series is focused on the spatially and temporally extremely diverse microbiological, molecular genetic, geological, hydrogeochemical, mineralogical, pedological, and geoecological mechanisms transport and impact of substances in the environment rely on.

The current program can be found here de

Schedule: during the lecture period, Tuesday, 5.15 p.m. to 7 p.m., Lecture Hall, Wöllnitzer Str. 7

 

Methods applied in hydrogeochemistry (WS), in German

Knowledge of sampling groundwater and surface water and its preservation for analysis for organic and inorganic water constituents is provided. An introduction to various analytical methods for dissolved and colloidal water constituents and for extraction from soils is given. Practical applications are made to check plausibility and to evaluate and present analytical results. 

(For current dates please search in the course catalog under event no.: 45686)

Isotope methods in Hydrogeology (WS), in German

An overview of the application of stable and radioactive isotopes for hydrogeological problems is given. The basics of measurement methodology of isotopes will be presented and data of different isotope methods from literature will be applied in practical exercises. Current measurement methodologies for the determination of stable isotopes will be practically applied and the obtained data will be evaluated.

(For current dates please search in the course catalog under event no.: 45717 and 45718)

Bio-Geo-Interactions 1 (Part 2) , in German

Literature and database research on selected topics in the geosciences and biosciences and the presentation of the acquired knowledge promote the ability to work independently in a scientific manner.

(For current dates please search in the course catalog under event no.: 22750)

Projects

Research

Rare earth elements as tools for process studies in various environmental compartments

After normalization to suitable standards such as Post Archean Australian Shale Rare earth elements (REE: La- Lu) can be applied to study processes such as dissolution, co(preciptation), sorption in the system water, soil, rock, and biota. A list of publications on these topics may be found here.

However, the application of REE for process studies relies on high qualitative analytical data. Typically, concentrations of REE in the environment are rather low while matrix elements are often highly concentrated thus impeding analytical measurements. For this reason methods for matrix separation/enrichment of REE from the water phase and for the interfrence free determination of REE are developed (further). Publications on this topic can be found here

A further research topic is the microbial impact on geochemical processes.

      Chair of Applied Geology
  • October 2014 - February 2017:
    • Master programme Geography (M.Sc.)
      Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg

  • October 2011 - September 2014
    • Bachelor programme Geography (B.Sc.)
      Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg

Field of research interests:

My last research topics were related to the investigation of the Fe-S-C-systems of (semi-)terrestrial and aquatic sediment bodies. Within my PhD thesis in the TRANS-LARA project I am working on the effect of colloids/nanoparticles on the transfer of radionuclides from the saturated groundwater system through the vadose zone to the biosphere (soil) under different climatic scenarios expected within the safety assessment period of a deep geological nuclear waste repository.

 

Further Interests: Limnology, GIS, Botany

Vegetation is a main landscape feature. It is anthropogenic influenced more or less and subjected to succession.  Particularly dynamic changes can be observed in devastated post mining areas as around Ronneburg. Standardized vegetation surveys are necessary to analyze such changes, for example vegetation survey according to Braun-Blanquet. With ecological indicator values of different species site conditions can be concluded."

Curriculum Vitae:

 

Since 08/2020:                  Postdoc

02/2016 – 07/2020:         PhD-student

Member of the International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles (IMPRS-gBGC)

Title of the thesis: “Metals in urban dust: Potentials of spider web biomonitoring and statistical approaches to identify anthropogenic sources of urban particulate matter”

01/2019 – 04/2019:        Research stay at the University of Copenhagen, section Chemometrics and Analytical Technology

10/2013 – 01/2016:         M.Sc. Environmental Chemistry, Friedrich Schiller University Jena

                                               Specialised course: Earth Sciences

Master’s thesis (translated from German): „Chemometric evaluation of the metal transport between soil and plant in pot experiments with energy crops”

10/2010 – 09/2013:         B.Sc. Chemistry, Friedrich Schiller University Jena

                                               Specialised course: Environmental Chemistry

Bacelor’s thesis (translated from German): „Degradation of trace contaminants in aquatic systems by means of sonocatalytic processes”

 

Research interests:

I am an environmental (geo)chemist mainly focusing on heavy metals in different environmental/geological matrices. One aspect of my work is biomonitoring of urban particulate matter, for example with spider webs. Another aspect is LA-ICP-MS which I apply on both geological and biological solid samples.

Besides, I am particularly interested in chemometrics. I am applying (multivariate) statistical methods to deal with big datasets and/or maximize the amount of information I can get from chemical analyses (e.g. identification of pollution sources or areas of special interest in solid samples).
