Project Title:Fate of Carbon Produced by Winter Dinoflagellate Blooms
Nicole Millette is currently working towards her master’s degree in biological oceanography at the University of Maryland though its Marine, Estuarine, and Environmental Sciences Program. She is located at Horn Point Laboratory in Cambridge, Maryland, where she works on winter dinoflagellate blooms in the Choptank River. She studies the predator-prey interactions of the plankton community during winter blooms and estimates how much carbon is potentially transferred up the food web as a result of those interactions. When she is not working on her research, she acts with a community theater troupe, the Tred Avon Players.
