Dr Weronika Erdmann

Master’s student in Geology

Member of the Polish Astrobiology Society

Scientific interests

My interests include astrobiology, geomagnetobiology (a branch of biology focusing on the impact of the Earth’s magnetic field on living organisms), as well as the ecology of tardigrades (small extremophilic invertebrates).
