About Matthias Egger
Matthias Egger is a marine biogeochemist working for The Ocean Cleanup Foundation. His broad research interests range from the transport and transformation processes of synthetic polymers in the ocean, the production and consumption of methane in the seabed, to nutrient dynamics in low-oxygen marine systems. Matthias obtained his Ph.D. in Marine Biogeochemistry at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. Before joining The Ocean Cleanup in 2018, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Geomicrobiology at Aarhus University in Denmark.
