Our research group is dedicated at understanding the ecology of phytoplankton in oceans (and periodically we will enter the freshwater world). As primary producers, phytoplankton, are important in the global cycles of carbon and nitrogen. We are contributing to this understanding by considering the role of metals on controlling phytoplankton community composition and activity. We have a long-term interest in iron as the limiting nutrient in both open oceans and as a regulator of community physiology in coastal waters.
