Scientific Interests and Goals:
My main interests are the interactions and controls in microbial communities in polar region. Particularly, the cryosphere related to marine systems, such as glaciers, ice shelfes, sea ice and ice bergs and the impact of enviornmental changes on the community structures and interactions in these habitats are interesting to me. So far, I mainly studied eukaryotic interactions on glaciers. Namely, the interactions between microalgae, protozoa and microinvertebrates on glaciers were my topics of interest. In the future I would like to extend this field and include prokaryotes and marine systems in the community analysis.
