Former chair: Ecophysiology of marine microalgae.
Key words: marine phytoplankton, marine carbon cycle, marine polar ecology, global change, harmful algal blooms, (micro)algal applications.

I am interested in all factors that control the growth and diversity of marine phytoplankton. In practice I was involved in projects that deal with climate change and (Ant)Arctic algal productivity and diversity, harmful algal blooms and algal applications. We executed experimental work in the lab, based on our extensive culture collection. Furthermore, we participated in field campaigns, for example to the open Atlantic, both polar regions, or Indonesia.
