Research Statement: 

My interdisciplinary graduate research project addresses the impacts of regional climate change on planktonic microorganisms in coastal marine ecosystems. Using integrated laboratory experiments and field studies, I examine the coupled biological and chemical changes in marine ecosystems as a result of increased anthropogenic climate change. Much of my research focuses on the interactive effects of ocean acidification and other chemical stressors on the growth and physiology of planktonic organisms. I also measure dissolved thorium isotopes in seawater to determine fluxes of atmospheric dust – a major source of iron for phytoplankton – in surface waters of the Indian Ocean.
