Podcast "You, Me & HIFMB – Stories of Science and the Sea"

Every two weeks, a new guest takes a seat across from Jan-Claas Dajka and talks to him about current research projects, curious anecdotes as well as paths, detours and companions in the (not only) scientific career. Jan is interdisciplinary postdoc in marine ecology and marine governance at HIFMB. Chatting with ecologists, geographers, bioacousticians, mathematicians and many more, he shows the interesting and diverse personalities behind the transdisciplinary research at HIFMB. The Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB) is a research institute located in Oldenburg. It researches marine biodiversity and its importance for the function of marine ecosystems. In doing so, it develops the scientific basis for marine nature conservation and ecosystem management.

Solomon Sebuliba - Inventor of the ”Bio Ocean”

Solomon Sebuliba considers himself a conservation biologist turned political ecologist who, in his PhD at HIFMB, looks at biodiversity as a concept. Specifically, he considers the inherent power that terms like “biodiversity” or “biological diversity” have. Through this, he came up with his own concept, the “Bio Ocean”. We also talk about Solomon’s deep and varied CV, working on the ICUN Red List, moving with his family from Uganda to Germany and much more. A must-listen!
