Focuses on the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in marine systems.
Plankton Ecology and Food-Web Interactions
Studying the physical and biological processes affecting growth and distribution of plankton and its role in the wider food web of marine environments.
Centers, Labs, and Programs
Identifying innovative solutions that partner algae research with private industry for commercial success.
CalCOFI is a long-term, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral ecosystem research program off the coast of California that holistically studies the physics, biogeochemistry, and biology of the marine environment to inform the sustainable management of marine resources in the context of climate change
Research in our lab traces the flow of organic matter through marine ecosystems, focusing on the trophic connectivity of species and assemblages in deep pelagic waters.
Zooplankton ecology, gelatinous zooplankton, trophic dynamics and effects on biogeochemistry, effects of climate change on pelagic communities
A marine biology laboratory that studies the role of bioluminescence in marine ecosystems.
Focused on understanding the interactions between light and living organisms.
