Microbial Plankton and Biogeochemistry Laboratory 


In our lab, we focus on the microbial life in brackish and marine habitats. We are particularly interested in the linkage between microbial activities and biogeochemical cycles in the water column. Our observational and experimental approach spans from microscopic, single-cell analyses up to flux measurements on ecosystem-scales. The ultimate goal is to link microbial identity with their activity and function in the pelagic zone.
