I am a phytoplankton ecologist currently working as a post doc in Uppsala (Sweden) and recently came back from two years at University of Georgia in Athens (US). Herein you will find updates on my previous and current research focusing on phytoplankton of all different … Continue readingWelcome!
We have recently published a new paper where we look at diel investments in phytoplankton-bacteria interactions using NMR and transcriptomics, and model the observed interactions across 48 h.
We recently published a paper where we use a combination of biogeochemical models and monitoring data to adress cyanobacteria biomass and nitrogen fixation in the Baltic Sea. Our model combination using the cyanobacteria life cycle (CLC) addiction improves the seasonality which results in estimates much … Continue readingNew paper on cyanobacteria modeling
A few weeks ago I was interviewed by the high school journal Word about my work as a researcher. We brought some plankton nets and went sampling in Fyrisån as well as some ponds on campus. Due to the late season we didn’t find much, … Continue readingInterview for the High School journal Word
Me and my family came back to Sweden in the end of June. There were with mixed feelings we left US, where a lot will be missed, but where we also welcome being close to family and friends again. We have now moved to Uppsala, … Continue readingBack in Sweden
It all started on ASLO 2018 as a discussion after one of the presentations and now its a paper! Hopefully you will find it as interesting as we think this concept of cryptic constituents in aquatic ecosystems is. We give several examples of carbon and … Continue readingNew paper out
We have a new publication out on plankton diversity in he Arctic, using an almos 20 year old dataset. Link here.
We are currently running the third temperature experiment in a year. This time we use an axenic strain of the coccolithophore Emilinia huxleyi and we grow it in three different temperatures; 15, 20, and 28°C. We will look at metabolites and gene expressions of the … Continue readingThe third temperature experiment
Wonderful Magnolia trees are in full bloom now and along with fall the most pleasant season here in Athens (GA, US).
We examined endometabolite production and transfer to surrounding bacteria by the cyanobacteria Synechococcus growing under three different temperatures; 20°C, 24°C, and 28°C. They all grew perfectly and were nice and pink at harvest in late exponential growth phase. We sampled for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) … Continue readingSynechococcus experiment
