Research Projects

Flow Cytometry in Marine Science
Brief overview of my use of flow cytometry in phytoplankton ecology and ecophysiology, instrumentation, and flow cytometry applications aboard ship.

DNA Cell Cycle Analysis in Marine Phytoplankton
Background information and application of flow cytometry to assess the cell cycle and cell division in marine phytoplankton.

Cytometric Quantification of Algal Nitrate Reductase
Report on first flow cytometric relative quantification of the enzyme nitrate reductase in the marine, bloom-forming diatom Skeletonema costatum in dependence of nutrient regime and bloom initiation (Download of PDF reprint).

Phytoplankton Ecophysiology
Dark survival of phytoplankton; novel growth form of marine silicoflagellate caused by changes in watershed eutrophication.
