Research interests

At the moment I am working on the implementation of a standard workflow for the operation and data handling of shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers on the four large German research vessels (Maria S. Merian, Meteor, Polarstern, Sonne). This is part of a pilot project initiated by the newly founded “Deutsche Allianz Meeresforschung e.V.” to further improve the acquisition of marine underway datasets and establish a coordinated and curated data flow from the vessels to the archive.
I am further interested in all kinds of ocean dynamics from large-scale currents and waves to internal waves and tides. I am specifically interested in collecting and analyzing field data and work with hydroacoustic and other oceanographic instruments.
