Biografie

since 2008
Research Associate and Lecturer - University of Potsdam (Germany)
2007
Research Assistant - Universitat de Barcelona (Spain), Department of Geochemistry, Petrology and Prospection Geology
2003- 2007
PhD Thesis - Universitat de Barcelona (Spain): "Lower Cretaceous reefal systems of the Maestrat Basin (Eastern Spain): Sedimentological, Palaeontological and Diagenetical models"
1997-2002
Degree in Geology - Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain). Thesis: "High-resolution Stratigraphy of the Upper and Middle Oxfordian in the Central Iberian Chain (NE Spain)"

Forschung

In general Sedimentology and Facies analysis of ancient carbonate systems, Palaeocology of reefs and Study of microbial buildups. Current interests focus on Dynamics of Mesozoic and Cenozoic depositional systems from the Tethys and the Mediterranean (Jurassic of Morocco and Spain; Paleogene of Oman; Miocene of Sardinia). Further research centers on 3D outcrop modelling of depositional architectures of carbonate systems.


Lehre

Sedimentary Petrology

Stratigraphy

Modern Carbonate Environments: from microbes to reefs
