Research

Research interests

I am an observational and experimental biologist, and I enjoy a balance of work at sea and in the laboratory. Research in our group is broadly concerned with understanding how organisms drive global biogeochemical cycles and how they are influenced by environmental change. A major part of our work involves collaborating with biogeochemical modellers, translating knowledge of ecology and physiology into mechanism-focussed models that help reduce uncertainty in our projections of how the ecological and biogeochemical functioning of the global ocean will change in the future. 

Much of our work focuses on marine copepods, tiny relatives of crabs and lobsters that are probably the most numerous animals on our planet. One estimate suggests that there are 1,300,000,000,000,000,000,000 copepods in the global ocean - two orders of magnitude more than all of the insects on land. Copepods drive one of the largest animal migrations on Earth, moving millions of tonnes of biomass into the deep ocean during the food-poor winter and reascending to feed in surface waters the following spring. This, and many other copepod-driven processes, help transport carbon down into the deep sea, where it may be locked away from the atmosphere for hundreds, or even thousands of years - thereby helping to regulate global climate. Given the importance of copepods in the global carbon cycle, there has never been a more urgent need to understand how they will be affected by environmental change.
