Staff members with discipline Oceanography

Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.

Overview of all disciplines

- Numerical Linear Algebra
- Preconditioning
- Parallel computing

Professor Climate and Environmental Change
Former chair: Ecophysiology of marine microalgae.
Key words: marine phytoplankton, marine carbon cycle, marine polar ecology, global change, harmful algal blooms, (micro)algal applications.

I am interested in all factors that control the growth and diversity of marine phytoplankton. In practice I was involved in projects that deal with climate change and (Ant)Arctic algal productivity and diversity, harmful algal blooms and algal applications. We executed experimental work in the lab, based on our extensive culture collection. Furthermore, we participated in field campaigns, for example to the open Atlantic, both polar regions, or Indonesia.

Field / Discipline
My research focusses on the role of metals in marine ecosystems. Though often solely regarded as toxins, metals are required as nutrients for the growth of all organisms. Metals form the reactive centres of enzymes, enabling these to perform biochemical functions, such as oxygen-transport or photosynthesis. As such, trace metals are central to the health of individual organisms as well as entire ecosystems. On the other hand, elevated concentrations of metals can have detrimental effect to individual organisms as well as ecosystems and this double sided nature of metals is what inspires my research.
