Hi! I’m Anne, a PhD student from Utrecht University, working on carbon cycling in the ocean. I develop models that help understand how changes in ocean environments influence the transfer of carbon, laterally (from land to ocean) and vertically (from ocean surface to the ocean floor). I have been in Utrecht for a while now, obtaining both my bachelors in Earth Sciences and my masters in Marine Sciences from Utrecht University. Olivier and I met in the office we shared for a while and quickly realized our shared interests, both scientific and otherwise. We joined a research expedition on the Atlantic together in the spring of 2023, that kickstarted our collaboration on several projects dealing with the formation and dissolution of marine biogenic calcium carbonates. I am excited for the work lying ahead of us, which includes the modelling of sinking shells and their potential dissolution pathways. Outside of work, I ride my road bike whenever I get the chance. Other things that make me happy are singing or playing the cello, making drawings and illustrations and being with people.
