Fields of Activity

  • Sampling and evaluation of data for the German commercial fishery in the Baltic Sea (EU-Data Collection Framework DCF)
  • Stock assessment of flounder (FLE-2223) and plaice (PLE-2432)
  • Maintaining and processing data from the  German commercial fisheries for international working groups and projects/databases (e.g. FishFrame, InterCatch)
  • ICES/HELCOM Workshop on Flatfish in the Baltic Sea WKFLABA in 2012
  • Regional Coordination meeting for the Baltic, since 2012
  • ICES Baltic Fisheries Assessment Working Group WGBFAS, since 2013
  • ICES Planning Group on Commercial Catches, Discard and Biological Sampling PGCCDBS, since 2013
  • Data Collection Framework DCF, since 2012

Research Interests

  • Dynamics of commercial fisheries in the Baltic Sea area
  • Fish movements and migration
  • Habitat connectivity
  • Artisanal fisheries („small-scale-fisheries“) in the Baltic Sea
  • Microchemistry and biogeochemical composition of otoliths

Scientific background

since 2012: Scientist at Thünen Institute for Baltic Sea Fisheries, Rostock

2003 – 2012: Laboratory Assistent at Dr. Baermann & Partner, Mikroanalytics, Hamburg (starting as student-assisstant, regular employment after the study)
