Schmoker Claire
Ms.

Claire Schmoker has been involved in the LAQUAN project during her PhD research, which was mainly focused on the study of genetic diversity of living cyanobacteria in microbial mats and on using paleodiversity of cyanobacteria as a marker in paleolimnology to study reconstruction of past climate changes in coastal Antarctic regions.
