Research Question
How does benthic fauna influence the generation of alkalinity in coastal sediments ?

My work focuses on the intricate links between benthic ecological processes, the marine carbonate system and climate change. I combine marine field campaigns, laboratory experiments in mesocosms and modelling approaches in order to answer how benthic fauna influence natural alkalinity generation in marine sediments. I work in close collaboration with the Department of Geobiology, University of Antwerp and RBINS, Brussels.
