Research Interests:

Ecology and ecosystem health related to algae, their lipids and fatty acid concentrations/ profiles, and how these are transferred through the food web.  Additionally, I am interested in algae from a biotechnology perspective – using their internal lipids/fatty acids to produce fuels and valuable biocompounds.
