Ophelie is pursuing a PhD on climate and ocean physics. She is investigating how the world's intermediate waters form, how climate and ocean model represent them, and what their role in climate is.
Ollie is focusing on developing a quantiative understanding of biogeochemical that controle the evolution of cerium (one of the rare earth elements) in the ocean.
Roshini is looking at the peculiar biogeochemistry of copper in the ocean. Copper is not only one of the major metal that is required to fuel the green transition, it is also both a micronutrient and can be toxic to marine life. Little is known about copper in the ocean.
Hannah works on the Pb cycle. Pb is not only toxic, it also posseses various isotopes that can (hopefully) be used to fingerprint the source of metal pollution through space and time. Hannah is developing models to quantify errors associated with the isotopic fingerprinting method and to advance our understanding of Pb biogeochemistry.
Sarawud (Juy) worries about the marine cycle of Arsenic. Arsenic is a powerful toxic metal, but little is known about its marine cycle. We know it has an interesting chemistry, but do not yet understand what controls the distribution and sources of Arsenic in the ocean.
Zhenxia just graduated with his MSc but we like him so much, we want to keep him longer. Zhenxia is working in the field of Industrial Ecology. He is developing a software (ElementTracker) that combines baysian statistics with material flow assessment modelling.
