Description: 

My primary interests focus on the composition, production and energy flow of pelagic ecosystems. More simply, my research explores the questions "How do planktonic communities work?", "How much energy do they process?", "Who's really important?", "How do communities vary temporally and spatially", and increasingly "How do communities change in response to climate". I am also recognized as a taxonomic authority on several groups of zooplankton globally, and for Arctic zooplanktonic biodiversity in general.
