New Max Planck Research Group: C. Hallmann
January 20, 2012
Christian Hallmann is interested in the paleoenvironmental conditions that influenced the evolution of early life during the Precambrian. In particular, he studies paleoceanographic conditions during the late Archean and the Neoproterozoic by analyzing lipid biomarkers preserved in ancient sedimentary rocks. By joining MPI-BGC in January 2012, he helps to increase our activities in marine palaeo-biogeochemistry research. He will also have an experimental research group located at the MARUM in Bremen.
