Richard SandersBeing a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Earth Sciences, at Cambridge University, Christoph works on innovative method development for high-precision ice core gas measurements. He is part of the WACSWAIN ERC advanced project aiming to assess the stability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Last Interglacial and its potential for catastrophic sea level rise in the coming centuries.
Christoph started his academic career as a tree-ring researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow, and Landscape Research  (WSL), an ETH-Zurich domain in Switzerland. In 2013 he moved to the Climate and Environmental Physics, Physics Institute, University of
Bern to work on his PhD project focussed on reconstructions of atmospheric carbon dioxide in the distant past based on tiny bubbles trapped in Antarctic ice. With about four years of Postdoc experience at Bern and Cambridge Christoph is an expert for ice core gas extraction, the reconstruction of atmospheric greenhouse gases over the past 800’000 years, and carbon cycle variability on orbital to centennial timescales.
