Project: Arctic Zooplankton
My project focuses on Arctic zooplankton, more specifically copepods, and their physiological budgets.
I plan to investigate ecological stoichiometry, and relate the nutrient composition of the copepods to the composition of their food. I will use phospholipid fatty acid analysis and 13C tracers with gas chromatography-combustion-isotope ratio mass spectrometry to trace trophic links.
I am a PhD student on the DIAPOD project.
