Franziska Elmer

Dr. Franziska Elmer studied environmental sciences at ETH Zurich and completed her PhD in marine biology at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. Since then she has spent 3 years in the Caribbean; as a lecturer in marine ecology she dove with her students almost daily to show them how coral reefs work. Her research focused on coral recruitment, stony coral tissue loss disease and the impact of Sargassum beaching events on ecosystems and local communities.  Since January, she has been on a climate change sabbatical in which she volunteers for various projects that help to solve this crisis.
