Degree HDR: P&M Curie, PhD:Doctorat de l'Universite' de la Méditerranée mention Océanologie
Job type Teaching/Education , Research
Research Area(s) Biological Oceanography, Marine Ecology , Chemical Oceanography , Biological Oceanography, Marine Ecology , Chemical Oceanography
Research Activities Primary production, Biooptical properties, nutrients, biogeochemical cyles
Research Region 2, 3,
Skills/Expertise My field research is focused on the study of primary productivity of marine pelagic ecosystems and on the coupling of biogeochemical cycles (C, N, P). My activities are focused on the impacts of environmental factors on phytoplankton activities and consequences for elemental stoichiometry of dissolved and particulate, mineral and organic compartments. The aim is to produce consistent budgets for energy and matter fluxes within contrasted ecosystems, in relation to the increasing anthropogenic pressure in a context of global climate change.
