Research Topics:

Research Interests:

My lab studies phytoplankton ecology, nitrogen cycling, harmful algae, eutrophication and ecological stoichiometry. Our projects range from understanding phytoplankton physiology of nutrient uptake, to assessing how nutrient quantity and form may alter the dynamics of ecosystems, and the effects of harmful algae on organisms and ecosystems. We are also interested in using stable isotopes and in situ technology to track these processes and in applying our work to models to understand nutrient effects at all levels of the food web. Our current projects are in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland Coastal Bays, Florida Bay and the San Francisco Bay Delta.
