Description of research and teaching

Research interests

My research interests are in the microscopical-sized life forms in humic lakes, especially in phytoplankton, including autotrophic picoplankton and mixotrophic algae, as well as in bacteria, heterotrophic flagellates and protozoa. My PhD thesis will consider these organisms as members of microbial food webs, and I am also interested in their role in lake carbon cycling in general. My current projects consider autotrophic and mixotrophic phytoplankton as potential oil sources for biodiesel production.
