As a seagoing oceanographer and plankton ecologist, I focus my research efforts on examining how microscopic organisms affect the biogeochemistry of the ocean, particularly predator prey interactions of singled celled eukaryotic microplankton. After receiving a ‘Diploma’ in Biology from the University of Bonn, with research done at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, Germany, I pursued M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Oceanography at the University of Washington. Before becoming a faculty member at the Graduate School of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island was a lecturer at Western Washington University’s Shannon Point Marine Center and a research fellow at Princeton University.
