I am interested in the ecology, genetics and phytogeography of economically important marine macroalgae and marine angiosperms, including eutrophication, primary productivity, nutrient relationships, autecology, physiology, and biochemistry. I am particularly interested in the aquaculture of marine plants (ei.g. Gracilaria; Porphyra=nori; and Laminaria=kelp)and the development of new technologies for the nutrient removal from aquaculture systems (IMTA, nutrient bioextraction). I am a certified SCUBA diver (NAUI and PADI) with over 40 years of experience.
Region of Study
