Key Research Interests and Expertise
My PhD project aims to look at climate change and variability through the lens of ocean ecosystems.
By running multiple future projections up to 2100, of the ecosystem response under a changing climate, my project will help assess the impact of climate change scenarios on plankton communities. In addition, I aim to assess the extent to which current models represent emergent ecosystem processes.
My work will use and contribute to the development of a cutting-edge model of ocean biogeochemical cycles, combing for the first time a high-resplution ocean physical component with a high-complexity representation of marine ecosystems.
My academic background is in biology, ecology and conservation. My current focus on the use of global ocean biogeochemistry models and macro-ecological data to understand the interactions between ecosystems and ecological drivers, such as climate change.
I am interested in understanding the functional contributions of taxa and their interactions with both their communities and the environment.
