Research profile

  • Non-tropical biosedimentary systems
  • Cold-water coral ecosystems
  • Bioerosion
  • Paleoecology

Research interests

My research focuses on geobiological studies of recent and fossil cold-water corals, with a focus on occurrences along the increasingly oxygen-poor upwelling areas of West Africa (Mauritania and Angola-Namibia). Another topic is research on the quantitative degradation of carbonate by biological processes (bioerosion). Finally, we are developing a global database on habitat-forming cold-water coral and associated communities across all phyla. In this database, the current state of knowledge of the composition of the reef inhabitants from the unicellular organisms to the fish, their geographical changes and their biological functions will be depicted for the first time.

Prof. Dr.  André Freiwald
Director of Senckenberg am Meer; Head of department marine research;Head of Division Marine Geology

Functions within Senckenberg:

  • Director of SaM
  • Head of Division Marine Geology (SaM)
  • Speaker of RA 4.1: Evolving Earth and Environment

Research profile

  • Non-tropical biosedimentary systems
  • Cold-water coral ecosystems
  • Bioerosion
  • Paleoecology

Research interests

My research focuses on geobiological studies of recent and fossil cold-water corals, with a focus on occurrences along the increasingly oxygen-poor upwelling areas of West Africa (Mauritania and Angola-Namibia). Another topic is research on the quantitative degradation of carbonate by biological processes (bioerosion). Finally, we are developing a global database on habitat-forming cold-water coral and associated communities across all phyla. In this database, the current state of knowledge of the composition of the reef inhabitants from the unicellular organisms to the fish, their geographical changes and their biological functions will be depicted for the first time.
