My research investigates how the physiology and composition of marine plankton communities are linked to variability in carbon export efficiencies. Through ship-based observations and experimental approaches my work will (i) shed light on how bulk photic layer plankton properties can be linked to optical properties retrievable from remote sensing and (ii) explore the potential of active sensor-based technologies.
