Research Profile

I am a NERC UK-GEOTRACES funded PhD student interested in the factors regulating phytoplankton ecophysiology in the global ocean. I use a multidisciplinary approach including field work at sea, laboratory work, and satellite remote sensing.

If you are interested in my research please feel free to contact me (details above).

I have now moved to GEOMAR (Germany). This page is no longer updated, please see my new profile:
