From 1991 to 1997 I studied physical oceanography at the University of Kiel and finished my studies with a thesis on boundary current transports in the North Atlantic. From 1998 to 2000 I had several positions either at the Institute for Marine Sciences Kiel or at the University of Kiel in the framework of a project focusing on dynamics of thermohaline circulation variability. In 2001 I continued my research at the Institute of Environmental Physics (IUP), University of Bremen where I completed in 2005 my PhD thesis on the variability in the circulation of water masses of the subpolar North Atlantic, and since then worked as a research scientist at IUP.<br /> As a physical oceanographer my focus is on the circulation of the subpolar North Atlantic and the formation and spreading of deep water and associated processes governing variability. Tools that I use comprise shipboard measurements of physical parameters, time series derived from moored instruments, remote-sensing and reanalyses products as well as gas-chromatographic analyses to investigate the oceanic content of dissolved anthropogenic trace gases. <br />
