Research Interests

My research interest focuses on phytoplankton and its role in the global biogeochemical cycles. My main motivation is to find out how is it possible that such tiny creatures have such power to shape the marine environment, world’s food supply, and in the end even climate. Work I’ve done spanned many aspects of phytoplankton research, from taxonomy and description of a new species, to community analysis, cycles of carbon and phosphorus and responses of single species to different stressors. At Bigelow I will be working on the carbon cycle and coccolithophore mixotrophy in the marine environment.
