Helen Hamaekers


My PhD focuses on the precipitation and formation mechanisms of Mg-rich carbonates, especially on the interplay between microbial-induced and abiotic precipitation of Mg-rich carbonates such as dolomite in different environmental settings.

Furthermore, I have worked on cold-water coral carbonate mounds from the Gulf of Cadiz and the Bay of Biscay.
