Area(s) of Expertise

My research interests focus on phytoplankton and zooplankton assemblages which comprise numerous taxa and play diverse ecological roles within aquatic ecosystems. My research group addresses how natural and anthropogenic processes shape plankton assemblages (e.g., harmful algal blooms) and how changes in plankton community structure and diversity impact biogeochemical cycles and ecosystem function in freshwater and marine environments.
