Nur Ili Hamizah Mustaffa

I am an early career Postdoc at the ICBM, Uni Oldenburg, working on the “Coastal Ocean Darkening” project (https://uol.de/en/icbm/collaborative-projects/coastal-ocean-darkening/). I did my PhD in the Oliver Wurl's lab through the project “Air-Sea gas exchange: Parametrization of the Sea Surface Microlayers Effect (PassMe).
