Research Summary

My research includes 1) various aspects of phytoplankton ecology, including harmful algal bloom species, dealing with the response of behavior and physiology to physical and chemical environmental conditions using field, laboratory and computer approaches; 2) improvements for satellite ocean color algorithms using proxy nutrient availability based on remotely sensed temperature; 3) 20th century Atlantic meridional overturning circulation variability and global ecosystem synchrony; 3) the hyperspectral characterization of coastal and oceanic waters in the Galapagos archipelago; 4) the marine formation of organic aerosols.
