Research interests

Within the framework of the EMERGO-Project I am interested in ecological patterns and processes of tidal flats. I am investigating the spatio-temporal morphodynamics of tidal flats and how they influence the benthic community. In reverse I am studying the effects of bioturbation of different macrozoobenthic communities on the tidal flat morphology.
