  • Interactions between planktonic microorganisms and the cycle of biogenic elements at varying  spatiotemporal scales from the single-cell functional role to the whole South West Pacific
  • Role and controls of di-nitrogen fixers in the south Pacific in the biological carbon pump and export
  • The importance of nitrogen transfer originating from diazotrophy through the planktonic network, including transfer through non-diazotrophic micro-algae.
