Doctoral Researcher

Mainly working together with Georg Feulner (ᴘɪᴋ) and colleagues from ɢꜰᴢ (H.S.D., J.B., Dynamics of early Earth and evolution of plate tectonics), my current aim is to examine the influence of particular climate ‘modes of operation’ on the very-long-term past evolution of plate tectonics (Snowball Earth and subsequent Hothouse Earth; Boring Billion). To this end, I use a climate model of intermediate complexity and work on developing a simple coupled model of climatic, Earth surface, and geodynamic processes.
