My primary work interest is studying the effects of nutrient enrichment on coral reef communities. Specifically, I am investigating the effects of nitrogen, phosphorus and iron on the productivity of benthic algae in the Pacific and Caribbean. I do this together with a large scientific team, consisting of the CRIOBE, the Max Planck Institutes in Bremen and Oldenburg (both Germany), the University of Santa Barbara, California (USA), the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands), l’Université des Antilles et de la Guyane (Guadeloupe), and the UC Berkeley Gump Station (Moorea).
