Research Interests

I study the spatial and temporal patterns of morphological diversity in phytoplankton and their underlying evolutionary and environmental influences. I combine modern-day studies of plankton biomechanics and biogeography with the power of the fossil record to get a holistic understanding – from the day to day functions of an individual cell to the radiations of lineages over millions of years.
