How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.


A Bit About The Team

I recently established the Marine Symbiomes Research Group at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn in Napoli, Italy.

I aim to build a hard working group of dynamic personalities to do exciting science in a relaxed environment. I am persuaded that every person, regardless of age, career title or experience can contribute greatly to our common research goals. I further adhere to the notion that science has no borders, and thus I work to establish collaborations with investigators from institutions in Europe and elsewhere.

I am always looking for motivated students or postdocs to join the group. However, funding is limited. Please stay tuned here and on the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn website for any job posting. Potential candidates are encouraged to contact me prior to submitting their application. Also, I will be happy to work with you if you want to write and apply for your own grant.

I love symbioses and the marine environment. I’m the guy that does his best to write good manuscripts and project proposals while keeping things light.

After a MSc at the University of Bremen (DE), I am now diving into biogeochemistry and nutrient cycles studying microbe-host associations within the eMBraCE project. Other likes? I love surfing, travelling and outdoor activities in general.

I am broadly interested in the mechanisms that regulate nutrients fluxes in aquatic environments. My expertise lies at the intersection between biogeochemistry, microbiology, and electrochemistry. My passion: playing ukulele!

Adjunct Scientist

I am interested in understanding how prokaryotic communities are shaped by the environment in marine and lagoon ecosystems, and their ecological and biogeochemical role from the coast to the deep-sea. Also, I am deeply in love with good music, good food and good friends.
