About this person

Research interests: Mechanisms controlling abundances, biodiversity and activities of microbes in order to understand the structure and function of marine microbial food webs. Main focus: Single celled eukaryotes (especially phytoplankton) and their interactions with grazers and virus; integrated field and experimental studies of the lower levels of the marine pelagic community. Technical expertise: Flow cytometry, mesocosm experimental work and phytoplankton culturing.
