Ms. Nicole Schwartz

I am  a German PhD student working at the University of Oldenburg in the north of Germany. I studied marine biology at the University of Bremen and started my PhD afterwards in November 2011. I am working on invasive species and want to investigate the chemecological traits, which contribute to invaders success. In Oman, I want to compare related invasive and non-invasive species in terms of their antifouling activity. Together with Dr. Sergey Dobretsov I sampled different species around the Omani coast and will conduct field- and laboratory experiments to investigate differences in their antifouling activity. I am looking forward to my work in this great country with nice and friendly people and hope to get useful results for my PhD thesis.
