My name is Niklas Löffler and I am a postdoctoral researcher and a self-proclaimed rock and fossil geek. I am part of the VeWA Subproject B3 force and my goal is to gain a better understanding of the land climate during the Paleocene and Eocene periods when mammals evolved by leaps and bounds a mere 66-34 million years ago. I can be found at any number of lab locations (geek!) but my mission is clear: measuring tooth enamel with geochemical methods to unlock the CO2 levels and temperatures during that very special time.
More information about this project can be found on the B3-project page.
