I am a phytoplankton ecologist. My major research interests are on understanding the effects of environmental changes such as climate change and nutrient enrichment on phytoplankton physiology. I am particularly interested in studying how these environmental changes would affect the physiology of harmful algae species and their effects on trophic interactions in the aquatic ecosystems.
