Algal Signalling and Physiology

Research Area: Algal biology

We are interested in the cellular mechanisms in marine phytoplankton that underpin and drive global biogeochemical cycles.

Using a combination of genomic and physiological techniques, we study how algae sense and respond to their environment.

Much of our research uses single cell microscopy approaches to directly visualise signalling processes. Some examples are shown below.
