Research summary

I am interested in the biogeography of cyanobacteria. They were the first photosynthetic organisms to evolve on our planet and are now widespread from cold glacial habitats at the poles to warm tropical oceans near the equator. Many species are important ecosystem engineers, generating organic nitrogen and carbohydrates which facitate the growth of other algae and plants. This is particularly important in the cryosphere and especially on the surface of glaciers where there are few external sources of organic nitrogen and where freezing temperatures and lack of water make it difficult for other organisms to survive. I investigated how cold ...

Biography

I completed my BSc in Biological Sciences with Study Abroad in 2015 at the University of Exeter. After a short break working outside of academia, I obtained a Master of Science in Climate Change Science and Policy from the University of Bristol (September 2017). Now, I am conducting a PhD to investigate how various species of cyanobacteria (often called blue-green algae) came to live in the ocean. My supervisors are Dr. Patricia Sanchez-Baracaldo and Professor Paul Valdes.
