Ecological dynamics depend on the complex interplay of individual physiology, population dynamics and evolution, species interactions, community structure and diversity, and ecosystem function. We explore these interactions across scales using mathematical, statistical, and experimental approaches to advance a mechanistic and predictive understanding of ecology. In pursuit of these goals, we spend a lot of time studying phytoplankton. These single-celled plants inhabit lakes and oceans, and play critical roles in global nutrient cycling and aquatic food webs.
