About Katrin

I'm currently employed as a Research Assistant in the NERC-Project: 'Quantifying the contribution of sympagic versus pelagic diatoms to Arctic food webs and biogeochemical fluxes: application of source-specific highly branched isoprenoid biomarkers' (PI: A. Atkinson, Co-PI: S. Belt). This is one of seven UK funded contributions to the 'Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate' (MOSAiC) led by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Germany.
