Role / Position
Scenior scientist in Physical Oceanography department
My tasks on MOSAiC
Perform observations with CTD and Microstructure profiler (MSS) and obtain high resolution time series data of turbulence and current field in the boundary layer of the sea ice – water interface
My biggest challenge
One of the biggest challenges for me will be the work during the polar night.
I am most excited about
Every oceanographer and physicist knows Nansens expedition with the Fram, which was a pioneering achievement 125 years ago. It provided first insights into ice drift and wind driven surface currents. Now being part of a similarly unique expedition is a scientist's dream.
