Biography

Dr. Olaf Dellwig is currently working as a Senior scientist at the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research, Marine Geology department. He has graduated on chemistry at the Carl-von-Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and he has earned his PhD from Carl-von-Ossietzky University of Oldenburg. He did his Post Doctoral studies at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM, University of Oldenburg) in the Microbiogeochemistry Group of H.-J. Brumsack and also in the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research, Marine Geology department in 2009 and since then working as Senior scientist at the same institute. Dr. Olaf Dellwig research include behaviour of redox-sensitive trace metals in recent and ancient aquatic ecosystems like coastal environments (e.g. tidal flats of the southern North Sea) or anoxic basins (e.g. Baltic Sea, Black Sea). In particular, he is interested in transfer reactions between the dissolved and particulate phase and the coupling to microbial and sedimentological processes under changing redox conditions. This includes processes in the open water column and in the sediments (pore water, groundwater).
