Eike Marie Thaysen
Research group: Groundwater and Hydrogeochemistry
An biogeochemist with four years of highly international research experience. Eike´s core research areas include biogeochemical cycling of carbon and hydrogen, the effect of climate change on global ecosystems, global climate change mitigation technologies as well as energy storage technologies that can secure a low carbon energy future. Eike advances and transforms current understanding in these areas through state-of-the-art experiments and benchmarking of numerical modelling. Eike is currently project manager and researcher on the IDAEA-lead UPWATER project, investigating groundwater pollution and remediation strategies.
Eike graduated as an environmental chemist from Copenhagen university in 2010, and completed her education with a PhD degree in biogeochemistry at the Danish Technical University in 2013. Since then Eike has had three postdoctoral positions at the The Danish Technical University, at IDAEA-CSIC and at Edinburgh University, respectively, where she advanced her field of research with significant scientific publications and developed her teaching in environmental geochemistry as well as in the supervision of Master´s studients. In 2017 Eike also worked as an environmental consultant in geochemical matters.
