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 a new paper out where we compare satellite data, microscopy derived biovolume, and phycocyanin fluorescence from a flow through sensor mounted on a merchant vessel as monitoring method of filamentous cyanobacteria. Red the full open access paper here.
We went sampling across the Gulf of Bothnia for one week. We performed 5 stable incubation experiments and collected a lot of DNA/RNA samples to explore nitrogen cycling in this overlooked region. We are now excited to find out what these samples can tell us. … Continue readingField trip – Gulf of Bothnia
Our most recent paper demonstrate changes in diatom endometabolome in exponential and stationary growth phases the grown together with three heterotrophic bacterial taxa. We used a combination of NMR and transcriptomics (for the bacteria and diatom) to trace production, release and estimated utilization of the … Continue readingNew paper out on diatom growth stages and its impact on the endometabolome
We have a new paper out from the Moran lab group. It covers what’s known on labile carbon production and release in the global ocean. The abstract: “Microbes of the surface ocean release, consume, and exchange labile metabolites at time scales of minutes to days. … Continue readingNew paper from the Moran lab
We have a new paper out demonstrating that the diatom Skeletonema marinoi has adapted to eutrophication by shifting its temporal niche to earlier in the season. The study was conducted in Finland and paper written in collaboration between scientists in Finland and SLU in Sweden. … Continue readingNew paper on temperature adaptation in Skeletonema
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
