My research combines satellite products, model outputs and in situ data to study physical/biological interactions and ecosystem processes, with a stronger focus on phytoplankton. I currently work at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO) on the SAPPHIRE project, looking at the effect of tropical islands on phytoplankton biomass and community composition.
SAPPHIRE (Systematic Analysis of Pacific PHytoplankton and Island Regional Effects) is a 15-months project funded by the European program Horizon 2020 via a Marie Sklodowska-Curie individual fellowship.
The overarching objective is to elucidate the impact of islands on phytoplankton communities, both at the local (individual islands) and basin (tropical Pacific) scales.
