Prof. Dr. Martin Quaas
Economist at the CAU Kiel and head of the working group on “Fisheries and Overfishing” of the Kiel “Future Ocean” Excellence Cluster. Prof. Quaas’ specialty fields are environmental, resource and ecological economics. With his research he aims to develop new fisheries management concepts and new market-based instruments of fisheries policy that promote sustainability in the fishing industry. > web
Prof. Dr. Till Requate
Economist at the CAU Kiel. Prof. Requate works in the fields of environmental policy and climate protection. While his research focus is on the efficiency and impact of climate policies, he also investigates the problem of overfishing and works on fisheries management concepts based on his findings. > web
Prof. Dr. Thorsten Reusch
Marine biologist at the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel. Prof. Reusch is head of the research unit for “Evolutionary Ecology of Marine Fishes”. His research interests are in the fields of evolutionary biology and population genetics as well as marine genomics. He also investigates the biological effects of global change and works on invasion biology and host-parasite interactions. > web
Prof. Dr. med. Philip Rosenstiel
Medical doctor and molecular biologist at the CAU Kiel and head of the working group on “Marine Medicine“ of the Kiel “Future Ocean” Excellence Cluster. Prof. Rosenstiel works on the clinical implementation of molecular biological research approaches. He investigates the mechanisms used by simple marine and aquatic organisms to shield themselves from their environment. He hopes to be able to use the findings in therapies for human illnesses involving boundary tissues. > web
Prof. Dr. Kerstin Schrottke
Geologist at the CAU Kiel and head of the working group on “Sea-Level Rise” of the Kiel “Future Ocean” Excellence Cluster. Prof. Schrottke’s research focus is on the earth’s coasts, and especially on estuaries and highly dynamic Wadden coasts and coastal cliffs, which undergo swift changes due to both natural forces and human impacts, often with major consequences. Together with her working group she analyses the processes occurring at the interfaces of land and sea, freshwater and saltwater, and water column and sediment with a view to determining coastal development, threats and protection measures. > web
Dipl.-Volkswirt Henning Sichelschmidt
Economist at the Institute for the World Economy of the CAU Kiel. H. Sichelschmidt studied institutional aspects of transportation, and economic effects of transportation infrastructure and shipping economics. Contact via: ruediger.soltwedel@ifw-kiel.de
PD Dr. Ursula Siebert
Veterinarian and leader of the section Ecology of Marine Mammals and Birds at the Research and Technology Centre (FTZ) of the CAU Kiel. Dr. Siebert investigates the distribution, health status, and behaviour of marine mammals. Her ecological research focuses on the impacts of environmental pollutants and other anthropogenic activities on marine organisms. > web
Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Soltwedel
Economist at the Institute for the World Economy of the CAU Kiel. Prof. Soltwedel’s research focus includes spatial aspects of European integration, innovation and cluster formation, and liberalization of network infrastructures. He has also studied the shipping industry in the context of an analysis of the transportation industry. > web
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Sommer
Marine biologist at the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel. Prof. Sommer investigates the impact of climate change on aquatic ecosystems and carries out research on marine ecosystems and food webs. The focus of his work is on interractions among species, and especially on competition and feeding relationships. > web
Prof. Dr. Karl Stattegger
Marine biologist at the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel. Prof. Sommer investigates the impact of climate change on aquatic ecosystems and carries out research on marine ecosystems and food webs. The focus of his work is on interractions among species, and especially on competition and feeding relationships. > web
Prof. Dr. Horst Sterr
Geographer at the CAU Kiel. Prof. Sterr’s specialty field is coastal geography with focus on climate-change impacts and natural hazards research. His aim is to assess the impacts of coastal disasters and find risk management solutions. He also carries out analyses and cost assessments of the expected damage caused by climate change and natural hazards in potentially threatened regions of the Earth. > web
Dr. Renate Sturm
Food chemist at the Institute for Coastal Research of the GKSS Research Centre in Geesthacht, Environmental Chemistry Department. The focus of her work is on the occurrence and fate of organic pollutants (POPs) in coastal and marine regions. > web
Prof. Dr. Tina Treude
Biological oceanographer, with a special focus on benthic microbial and biogeochemical processes, at the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, IFM-GEOMAR, Kiel. Head of the working group on “Seafloor Warming” within the Kiel “Future Ocean” Excellence Cluster. Prof. Treude investigates the potential impacts of climate-induced seafloor warming on the stability of gas hydrates and associated biogeochemical processes in both the seabed and water column. Other topics of her research include microbial processes in sediments of cold seeps and within oxygen-minimum zones as well as microbe-mineral interactions. > web
Prof. Dr. Athanasios Vafeidis
Geographer at the CAU Kiel and head of the working group “Coastal Risks and Sea-Level Rise” of the Kiel “Future Ocean” Excellence Cluster. Prof. Vafeidis investigates the risks associated with sea-level rise in coastal areas and looks at how these risks are exacerbated by increasing human pressure. In particular, his research focuses on the analysis, modelling and assessment of both physical and socio-economic impacts of accelerated sea-level rise in coastal regions, at different spatial and temporal scales. > web
