Research fields and current projects


  • Origin of the Earth-Moon system

  • Reconstruction of the ocean temperatures in the Archean and Proterozoic

  • Triple oxygen isotope variations in terrestrial materials

  • Understanding of processes and their chronology in the early Solar system (DFG-projects PA909/2-1, PA909/2-1 [DFG Emmy-Noether-Research Group], PA-909/7-1, PA-909/8-1)

  • Determination of paleo-CO2 concentrations and global bioproduction rates throughout the Mesozoic and Cenozoic by means of triple oxygen isotope analyses of fossil bioapatite (DFG-project PA909/5-1)

  • Thermodynamics of Si in metal solid solutions with application to the formation mechanisms of planetary cores

  • Characterization of the oxygen triple isotope composition (δ17O, δ18O) of atmospheric CO2 and its sources - methodological development and application (DFG-project PA909/4-1)

  • Determination of the isotope composition of stratospheric atomic oxygen using micrometeorites (shooting stars, DFG-projects PA909/2-1 und PA909/2-2, DFG Emmy-Noether-Research Group)
