Skills/Expertise Before I started my Phd I have inventarised the knowledge about eutrophication in fresh water lakes. My PhD subject was to study the effect of nematodes and Corophium volutator on the sediment stability in intertidal flats. The sediment stability is directly influenced by mucus production and bioturbation. An indirect effect is the grazing on diatoms, which excrete also a lot of mucus. Mucus stabilises the sediment.
