Research interests include ocean color remote sensing, CubeSats, phytoplankton ecology, ocean optics, submesoscale processes, biogeochemical cycles, coral reef ecology, statistical modeling, Earth System Models and big data analysis.
My research addresses how unicellular eukaryotes (also known as protists) respond to changes in their chemical environment on molecular, physiological and ecological scales, and the resulting implications for biogeochemical nutrient cycling in the ocean. Photosynthetic protists, in particular, play a key role in ocean biogeochemistry by converting atmospheric carbon dioxide into organic carbon, transferring energy to higher trophic levels and…
I am a biogeochemist interested in marine particles and especially how rare, but important! trace elements cycle through them. From a chemical perspective, marine particles are a complex mixture of living and non-living phases like organisms, bio-minerals, crust-derived rock minerals in dust and sediments, and larger aggregates, all constantly interacting with each other. Particles are important sources and repositories of elements required for…
