My research focuses on how ocean acidification will affect the marine biological pump. My work combines in-situ pH measurements from SBC-LTER SeaFET pH sensors and laboratory microcosm experiments to answer ecological questions about phytoplankton biogeochemistry under current and future pCO2 conditions. I am specifically interested in determining how carbon in the form of transparent exopolymer particles (TEP) contributes to the processes of aggregation and export flux in an acidified future ocean.
