Dorothee Kottmeier

Post Doctoral Researcher

Dorothee is postdoctoral researcher in Professor Brownlee’s group investigating single cell physiology of coccolithophores and diatoms, using electrophysiological and imaging approaches for monitoring intracellular and cell surface properties.

From 2011 to 2016, she worked Marine Biogeosciences department of the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany where she studied the substrate supply for photosynthesis and calcification in coccolithophores by means of membrane inlet mass spectrometry and 14C tracer techniques, and how membrane transport is regulated by environmental changes in pH and light.
