Co-Leader, Climate change effects on foundation species
Georg is a Senior Research Associate and Lecturer at Freie Universität Berlin. He is a carbonate geologist, specialising in coral reef sedimentology with a strong integrative and inter-disciplinary approach. He conducted research programmes in coral reef growth, paleo-climatologic studies using corals in the recent past and the Holocene, as well as present human impacts on coral reefs.
His main interests are adaptations of coral reefs to changing environmental conditions, including climate change and acidification of the oceans.
Within the project, Georg is a research fellow specializing in paleoclimatic research in coral reefs.
