Marc Bormann is a PhD student in the CRC project B2 “Climatic and Environmental History of the Balkans During the Last Glacial Cycle”. He studied Geography, Geology and Soil Science at the Universities of Cologne and Bonn. In his PhD project, starting in January 2014, he investigates a sediment record from the Mohos crater in the Eastern Romanian Carpathians using a multiproxy approach.
Svenja studied Physical Geography (M.Sc.) at University of Cologne and her Master’s thesis was about the depositional history of sediments within Mochena Borago Rockshelter that is affiliated in project A1. She is employed as research assistant in Project A1 since July 2014.
This PhD topic lies within the B1 project, which deals with the paleoenvironmental conditions during modern human migration through southeastern Europe. A multi-proxy approach combining sedimentology, geochemistry, rock magnetism and luminescence dating is applied on loess-paleosol sequences on geoarchives in Hungary, Serbia and Romania.
Tabea Schröder is a PhD student in Project C3 at the Institute of Neotectonics and Natural Hazards at the RWTH Aachen.
