Despite their invisibility to the naked eye, marine phytoplankton are responsible for ~50% of global primary production and investigating their response to changing environmental conditions is of great importance to predict the future of marine ecosystems. My research focuses on the individual and interactive effects of ocean acidification and warming on marine phytoplankton. By means of incubation and mesocosm experiments I study the potential impacts of climate change on marine biogeochemical cycling in the ocean.
