Summary of CV:

Wilhelm Hagen, professor at Bremen University (Germany), is an expert in marine pelagic ecophysiology and ecology. Since 1998 he is head of the Marine Zoology (www.marzoo.uni-bremen.de). He is teaching e.g. Marine Habitats, Introduction to Marine Biology, Marine Invertebrates and Vertebrates, Ecophysiology and Plankton Ecology in the Bachelor of Science program in Biology, in the International Master Program Marine Biology and the ERASMUS MUNDUS Master Program of Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (EMBC). He is supporting 7 ongoing Ph.D. candidates (8 defended in the last 5 years). He has published 80 peer-reviewed papers in various fields of marine ecophysiology and ecology (marine zooplankton, fish, mammals). He has been project leader in various large marine research projects (Southern Ocean GLOBEC, GLOBEC Germany, IMBER/GENUS Benguela Upwelling System).

Experience Higher education:

Prof. Hagen has teaching experience since 20 years, as assistant professor at the university (Polar Ecology institute) and the Institute of Marine Research in Kiel, since 1998 as professor at the University of Bremen. Since 4 years he is vice-dean of the Faculty of Biology and Chemistry. He is coordinator of the M.Sc. program Marine Biology and on the board of two Graduate Schools (POLMAR Helmholtz School of polar and marine research, GLOMAR Excellence School on global change in the marine realm) and of the International Antarctic Institute Master Program, now coordinated by the University of Tasmania, Australia.

His research is focusing on marine pelagic ecophysiology and ecology with emphasis on seasonal phenomena and adaptations of zooplankton, fish and mammals (overwintering strategies, energetics, trophic biomarkers etc.). He has been project leader in various large marine research projects (Southern Ocean GLOBEC, GLOBEC Germany, IMBER/GENUS Benguela Upwelling System). He is coordinator of the GENUS capacity building program to support young Namibian scientists.
His lectures include Marine Habitats, Introduction to Marine Biology, Marine Invertebrates, Marine Vertebrates, Marine Ecophysiology and Plankton Ecology as well as field trips in the Bachelor of Science program in Biology, in the Master of Science program Marine Biology and the ERASMUS MUNDUS Master Program of Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (EMBC).
