Research project: Probing rates of growth and mortality in coccolithophore populations
My research aims to look at the factors affecting in situ growth and calcification rates of coccolithophores. I am also interested in the role microzooplankton grazing plays in coccolithophore mortality along with the biogeochemical implications.
I also have an ongoing project with the Van Mooy lab at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution investigating the lipidomes of haptophyte algae.
