Personal profile

Research expertise

My interests lie in understanding how sea ice derived organic carbon is utilised in polar environments.

To study this, I use chemical biomarkers, including fatty acids, sterols and highly branched isoprenoids (HBIs) to understand questions about how species might respond to decreasing sea ice cover, and potentially carbon supply, in the future.

I am also interested in exploring the potential value of identifying further algal species that contribute to the presence of HBI lipids in all aquatic settings, including freshwater and marine temperate and polar settings.
