I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the University Medical Center Göttingen, in Göttingen, Germany. My research looks at how chemicals preserved in the shells of foraminifera, a type of marine zooplankton, can tell us about the climate of the past. I study this because I care about future climate change, and learning how Earth's climate changed in the past is a valuable tool that lets us predict how its climate will change in the future.
