Ocean Acidification  

Dr. Marius N. Müller is currently working at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) in Hobart, Tasmania. Dr. Müller completed his PhD thesis at the GEOMAR in Kiel (Germany) in 2009. In 2006 he was awarded with ‘Young Scientist (YSOPP) Award’ by the European Geosciences Union. Before joining the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) in 2011, he was working at the Laboratoire Océanographique Villefranche-sur-mer (LOV) in France. His work is focused on marine calcifying phytoplankton (coccolithophores) and their response to climate change driven alterations of the oceanic environment (e.g. ocean acidification/warming) and their evolutionary history since the Cretaceous. Additionally, he has a great interest in the calibration and application of coccolithophorid based paleo-proxies (calcite elemental ratios and isotopic fractionation). On a broader scale, Dr. Müller enjoys the science of coccolithophores from the past to the projected future and their role in biogeochemical cycles (e.g. carbon and calcium) over ecological and geological time scales.
