Teaching in courses; Marine Ecology, Discovery of a Sustainable Baltic Sea
I am investigating the production and transportation of vitamins and pigments in the aquatic food web. Vitamins and pigments are produced by bacteria and phytoplankton and are essential for all organisms, even zooplankton and fish. My research is focused on bacteria, phytoplankton and zooplankton and I investigate differences in production and content of vitamins and pigments on temporal and spatial scales in the Baltic Sea and the Western Sea. To do this I use classic field sampling procedures as well as state-of-the-art techniques in the lab.
