Research Activities The field of my research activities is related to Global Change and Ecosystem Functioning. The research is approached from two directions: field measurements and laboratory studies. The research is interdisciplinary and undertaken in collaboration with national (e.g. MBA, PML, BAS, Universities of Birmingham, Essex, Liverpool, Plymouth, East Anglia, Reading) and international partners (e.g. in Australia, Belgium, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Kuwait, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, US). # Open Ocean Biogeochemistry My main open ocean research interest lies in the study of trace metal, nutrient and carbon distribution, behaviour and speciation and the interactions with geochemical and biological processes. Current programmes that we are involved in: # UK SOLAS (influence of Saharan dust inputs on microbial communities in N Atlantic) # Atlantic Meridional Transect Study (Fe, carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus biogeochemistry and nutrient limitation) # Extended Ellett Line programme (Fe biogeochemistry and limitation) # Southern Ocean BAS programme (Fe biogeochemistry and nutrient limitation) # 36ºN consortium (DOC and DON biogeochemistry; with Liverpool) # Fe uptake by marine phytoplankton (with MBA) # UK SOLAS (air-sea exchange of climatically important gases; with PML) # Marie Curie Post-DOC programme (role of sulphur compounds (thiols) in metal regulation by phytoplankton) # Ocean acidification (with NOCS, UEA and PML)
Research Region estuarine and coastal waters; open ocean; rivers and lakes
