My research interests include incorporating observations and global modeling to understand global marine biogeochemical cycles. As a member in PalMod project, I am working on implementing a optimality based model of marine plankton growth into a 3D Earth System Climate Model (UVic ESCM). My goal is to better understand the role of phytoplankton in the climate system from last glacial maximum to present, and understand the potential changes in the future.
