Through experimentation at the University of Bristol’s LOW Temperature EXperimental (LOWTEX) facility and study of algal communities in remote regions of the Arctic, she will assess how the productivity of diatom species inhabiting sea ice may respond to ongoing environmental change.
This work will help quantify the contributions of sea ice algae to carbon cycling in the Arctic marine system, and will provide the foundations for additional assessments on lipids and biogeochemical modeling in the project.
