Principal Interests

  • Sedimentology, Stratigraphy, Sedimentary Petrography, Regional Geology
  • Deformed sedimentary basins
  • Earth History with an emphasis on Archean geology
  • Petroleum geoscience with a focus on reservoir characterization

Most of my studies are field-based.

I have long been fascinated by the surface conditions of the early Earth. To that purpose, my students (at all levels) and I conduct field-based studies in the Barberton Greenstone Belt (South Africa and Eswatini). Depending on the research questions, these studies combine field geology with geochronologic, stratigraphic, sedimentologic, structural and/or biogeochemical aspects. I regularly write grant proposals and advertise for PhD-students.

My Projects

Currently, the following projects are active :

  • Terrestrial surface environments of the Moodies Group (PhD-student Sebastian Reimann)
  • The Moodies Magmatic Complex (PhD-student Deon Janse van Rensburg)
  • BASE (Barberton Archean Surface Environments): an ICDP-funded drilling project, including 8 inclined cored boreholes of 280-500 m length each through key section of the Moodies Group (3.22 Ga) of the Barberton Greenstone Belt
  • BROMACKER: Investigating the paleoecology of an early Permian terrestrial vertebrate lagerstaette (2 Postodcs, several MSc-students)

These projects have recently been concluded

  • Earth's oldest mappable ecosystem: Biomats of the Moodies Group (former PhD-student Martin Homann, former postdocs Dr. Inga Köhler, Sami Nabhan)
  • The role of Partial Convective Overturn in the Barberton Greenstone Belt: Linking deep crustal-mantle and surface processes through integrated sedimentary and structural analysis of the syntectonic Moodies Group (with Martin Van Kranendonk and former PhD-Student Matthias Schmitz)

Teaching responsibilities

Outside of Archean gelogy, I contribute to publications on clastic sediments in various environments and of various ages.

In Jena (2014-present), I teach Sedimentary Geology ("Exogene Geologie") and Earth History at the undergraduate level, Sedimentary Basins and Subsurface Management at the graduate level and contribute a few lectures and exercises on Hydrocarbons to Resource Geology, all during summer term ("Sommersemester").

In winter term ("Wintersemester"), I teach the graduate class Sedimentary Petrography, a graduate seminar on Earth Systems / Earth History, contribute to a short graduate field course (Regional Geology) in March or April and contribute to the undergraduate classes Introduction to Sedimentary PetrographyLaboratory Methods in Sedimentary Geology and to Introductory Geology.

Every two years or so, I teach or co-teach the Große Exkursion, the final two-week international field trip of the Master's program.

In Berlin (2000-2014), I taught a similar set of classes: Sedimentary Geology, parts of Earth History, parts of Introductory Geology, field classes, and seminars at the undergraduate level. At the graduate level, I taught Petroleum Geology, Sedimentary Petrography and parts of Tectonics of Sedimentary BasinsAdvanced Field Methods, a variety of regional field seminars, and How to build a habitable Earth.
