Christiane is a post doctoral ‘Make Our Planet Great Again’ (MOPGA) fellow in the Methane Seepage History research area
Her current topic of research is increasing our understanding of microbial protist ecology in methane seep environments. Other research interests include marine symbiosis in extreme conditions, methane environments, foraminiferal experimental manipulations, carbon cycle, and adaptations to environmental change.
Christiane received her PhD in Geosciences from University of Bremen in Germany, and has a Master’s and a Bachelor’s degree in Geoecology and Ecosystem Management from the University of Tübingen, also in Germany.
Fellowships include the current MOPGA fellowship (collaboration NORCRUST CAGE, Norway and University of Angers, France), and former positions at the MARUM, funded through the Central Research Development Fund at the University of Bremen, with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and a DAAD fellowship during her master’s studies.
