Research interests

Relationships between phytoplankton eco-physiology and water optical properties; application of inherent and apparent optical properties for the study of aquatic ecosystem dynamics; phytoplankton acclimation to light and nutrient stress; size dependence of phytoplankton eco-physiological processes; remote-sensing algorithm development; radiative transfer in natural waters, plant leaves, canopies, and the atmosphere; single particle optical properties; in-situ continuous optical monitoring systems; influence of atmospheric depositions on aquatic ecosystem dynamics.

Current projects

National Centre for Earth Observation: Quantification of bio-physical interactions and air-sea carbon dioxide fluxes using satellite and in-situ data; JAXA GCOM-C1.
