I am interested in the interaction between biogeochemistry and the structures and dynamics of aquatic ecosystems. My research is directed at understanding the factors that regulate the cycling of nutrients and the growth of phytoplankton in the water columns of coastal marine environments. Using comparative approaches, my research also seeks to understand how the structures and dynamics of aquatic systems may vary or remain largely conserved across broad gradients in geographical or environmental settings.
