Funktion und Aufgaben:

I am a postdoctoral researcher mostly working with scanning electron microscopes at Potsdam Imaging and Spectral Analysis (PISA) Facility. My scientific work mostly focuses on experimental mineralogy and geochemistry. I am particularly interested in the issues of geomicrobiology and biomineralogy of surface zone environments, especially AMD environments. 
  1. Daily maintenance of scanning electron microscopes
  2. Support, and training SEM users 
  3. Sample preparation and methodology development for data acquisition especially for environmental, biological, and organic samples

Wissenschaftliche Interessen:

Scanning electron microscopy data acquisition 

Geochemistry and mineralogy of AMD, weathering environments

Experimental geochemistry and mineralogy 

Thermodynamic modeling of AMD environments

Synthetic nanostructures and their toxicity
