Understanding and quantifying the interactions between grazers and phytoplankton in a major UK lowland river-system, the Thames.
As part of my PhD, I am based at the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, where I have characterized grazers across the Thames and now I am looking at the grazer-phytoplankton interactions through a combination of laboratory, in situ and model-based experiments.
