Relation with IODP projects:

I am deeply involved in the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) http://www.iodp.org/.
I studied samples from the ODP Leg 161 Site 975 (Algero-Balearic region) and 976 (Alboran Sea), sampled at the IODP Core Repository (Bremen, Germany) during my Ph. D thesis. I attended the Expert in Marine Core School (2008, Japan) held in the IODP Core Repository (Kochi, Japan). I participate, as inorganic chemist (Japanese team member), at the Expedition 318 IODP, Wilkes Land, East Antarctica Margin (6 January-12 March 2010). I participate, as Physical Properties Specialist (Japanese team member), at the Expedition 339 IODP, Mediterranean Outlflow. Present day I am involved in different studies base in materials recovered during this IODP expeditions. I am also member for an “IODP flagship proposal” for Drilling the Messinien Mediterranean Salt deposits using R/V Chikyu, CHIKYU+10 meeting (GOLD-Project and DREAM-Project).

Reviewer and project evaluator:

I reviewed publications in the following journals: Quaternary Science Reviews, Quaternary Research,  Central European Journal of Geosciences (CEJG) and Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences.
I evaluate projects for the Swiss National Science Foundation during 2010-2011 and 2011- 2012.
