My research interest is centered on harmful algal blooms (HABs), nutrient speciation and dynamics, origin, sources, and management of aquatic ecosystems. Particularly, I am interested in addressing questions about the environmental factors controlling cyanobacterial blooms; sources and roles of nutrients in eutrophication; cyanobacterial seasonal dynamics, nutrient limitation and stoichiometric ratios; and dynamics of toxin-producing HABs and eutrophication in aquatic ecosystems.
