My research primarily focuses on how environmental factors such as nutrients and salinity effect the growth and toxin production of cyanobacteria. I am also interested in understanding how these effects differ between cyanobacteria that can and cannot ‘fix’ atmospheric nitrogen. I have also been looking at spatiotemporal differences in phytoplankton community structure in Lake Waco, and correlating those community dynamics to environmental and nutrient variables.
