Research Interests:

Zooplankton represent a link between primary producers (algae) and higher trophic levels such as commercially and ecologically important fish species. To study zooplankton requires incorporation of various disciplines and sampling or experimenting across time and space scales. My work focuses on biological oceanography and zooplankton ecology.
