Project: Arctic Zooplankton

Supervisors: Daniel Mayor (NOC Southampton), David Pond (SAMS), and Thomas Anderson (NOC Southampton)

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.
