M. Sc. Charlotte Läuchli
Funktion und Aufgaben:
I am a PhD student interested in deep-marine sedimentary records as (1) archives for climate and tectonic conditions of the past, and (2) the locus of key reactions for the geochemical cycling of elements.
- Cosmogenic nuclides
- Deep-marine sediments
- Biomarkers (Carbon and hydrogen isotopes of leaf wax n-alkane)
- Lithium isotopes
- Silicate weathering
- Early diagenesis processes in marine environments
- February 2019 - Currently PhD candidate at the Freie Universität Berlin – Tectonic and Sedimentary Systems/ GFZ Potsdam – Earth Surface Geochemistry
- October - December 2018 Consultant as Data analyst at the UNEP/GRID-GENEVA
- April - July 2018 Internship at the UNEP/GRID-Geneva for the MapX application
Werdegang / Ausbildung:
- Fall 2018 Complementary certificate in Geomaticsat the University of Geneva
- 2015 - January 2018 Master degree in Geology at the University of Geneva
- March 2017 European Regional Finals of the AAPG Imperial Barrel Award 2017 competition
- 2008 – 2012 Bachelor degree in Earth and Environmental Science - University of Geneva / University of Ottawa (Exchange year)
My PhD project, supervised by Anne Bernhardt (FU-Berlin), Hella Wittmann (GFZ-Potsdam), Dirk Sachse (GFZ-Potsdam), and Patrick Frings (GFZ-Potsdam) and performed in close collaboration with Nestor Gaviria (GFZ-Potsdam), investigates the response of the Chilean landscape and its sedimentary systems to the regional aridification taking place after the Last Glacial Maximum. This project is part of the DFG-SPP EarthShape.
