Curriculum Vitae Stephan Gollasch
Dr. S. Gollasch was
involved in the first European ship sampling programme on ballast
water, tank sediments and ship hull fouling (1992-1996).
His PhD is world-wide the first thesis based on ship sampling. Together
with colleagues from 5 countries, he prepared the first risk assessment
study for species invasions in the Baltic Sea, carried out for the
Nordic Council of Ministers, Copenhagen.
Due to the international aspect of biological invasions Dr. Gollasch
became a member of several international working groups: International
Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), International Maritime
Organization (IMO), and the Baltic Marine Biologists (BMB). He was also
involved in the EU Concerted Action "Introductions with Ships" as
co-chairman (completed in January 2000).
Until summer 2001 Dr. Gollasch
coordinated a bilateral research initiative together with a Canadian
colleague to assess the survival of species in ballast water en-route.
In addition to laboratory and desk studies he spent more than 125 days
at sea during several ballast water sampling programmes.
As an independent consultant he is today involved in projects related
to biological invasions (e.g. ballast water treatment, ship sampling,
risk assessment). Recent contracts include the German and Dutch
Ministry of Transport, German Ministry of the Environment, German
Federal Agency for Shipping and Hydrography, International Maritime
Organization and the European Commission. From 2005 to 2008 he was
the EU-Project Delivering alien Invasive Species Inventories for Europe
(DAISIE). Currently he is a work package leader in the EU
Programme Environmental Impacts of Alien Species in Aquaculture
(IMPASSE). This programme will end in Nov. 2008.
key work item is onboard efficacy tests of ballast water treatment
systems and GoConsult is involved in planning and carrying out such
tests for six vendors.
