GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel


My research foci are description of biogeochemical processes in large-scale models, assessment of model skill, and optimization of biogeochemical model components on a global scale. This involves analysis and synthesis of observations, as well as development and tests of different metrics. For my work I mainly use the "Transport Matrix Method" developed by Samar Khatiwala.
