Micro paleontology, sedimentology and fossil fuels
I started working full-time for IODP in June 2011. This is my 4th expedition. I introduce the scientists to our descriptive core program, trouble shoot software problems, take care of microscopes and paleo prep area, as well as Core handling on the catwalk.
During my PhD (2009) I participated as a nannoplankton specialist in an IODP expedition. The atmosphere on the JR made me want to come back and be part of the team. Working in a team with colleagues from all over the world is a top experience.
Paleontology, sedimentology, reading, sports, traveling
