Biological Oceanography

I am a marine microbial ecologist interested in the evolution and ecology of marine bacteria and phytoplankton. We use a variety of approaches in the lab; physiological (growth experiments and pigment analyses), molecular (quantitative PCR, sequencing and expression assays) and computational (phylogenetic analyses, comparative genomics). The multiple projects in the lab all address common questions: How does genetic diversity arise in marine microbial populations, how is it maintained, and how does it influence ecological success.
