Phytoplankton and ice phenology
Dissolved oxygen dynamics
Estuarine circulation and secondary circulation
My research has been focused on physical and biogeochemical responses of coastal oceans to natural and anthropogenically-induced environmental change. Particularly, I am interested in the “bottom-up effects”, which encompass the changes from physical environment (e.g., stratification, circulation, sea ice) to nutrient cycling (i.e., major and trace) to biological primary production. I actively collaborate with colleagues to link our understanding of those components to ecological problems and pave the way for studies of the complex food web. Coupled biogeochemical-physical models, complemented by analytical and observational approaches, are important tools for my studies.
