Some Info I graduated with an M.Sc. in Ecology and Nature Management from the University of Hamburg and the University of St. Petersburg in 2011. After one year of working at an environmental education organization, I decided to pursue an academic career and became a research assistant at the University of St. Petersburg in 2012 and then at GEOMAR in 2013. In 2018, I completed a Doctorate in Natural Sciences at Kiel University and Mainz Academy of Sciences, focusing on paleoceanography of the last interglacial in the North Atlantic. As a postdoc, I worked at GEOMAR and Dalhousie University. Since 2023, I am a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at WHOI and GEOMAR. My current project, "MIS-5e," with Sophie Hines (WHOI), Kassandra Costa (WHOI), and Eleni Anagnostou (GEOMAR), aims to understand the feedbacks between ocean circulation variability and carbon cycling during the last interglacial.
