Research interest

In my PhD project, I am working on the sea level during the last, major Interglacial (MIS 5e). I am especially interested in the vertical correlation between different indicators (e.g. beach deposits or tidal notches) and the sea level during this time. Therefore, I am using different hydrological and morphological models (Delft3D, CShore). Further, by using a high-precision GPS device, I am collecting new field data in the framework of different project of my working group in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
