Our multidisciplinary research team studies the biogeochemistry of marine systems, both in the open ocean and in shelf seas. We take on societal and global environmental issues.
Our research contributes to the understanding of the ocean's role in global carbon, nutrient and other chemical cycles. We study the anthropogenic effects on the ocean’s functions and ecosystem services. We also research the ocean's role as a sponge for carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
My research interests are mainly within the functional roles of microorganisms in biogeochemical cycling, particularly the nitrogen and carbon cycles, in diverse marine and aquatic systems.
