Topic: Ecotoxicology of nano- and microplastics and plankton ecology
I focus on understanding the nano- and micro-plastic induced effects on the plankton species at the base of the food web, such as phytoplankton and zooplankton, and possible consequences on ecosystem services and biogeochemical cycles. Specific interest to see how the ecotoxicological effects play out at the community level - within and between the 2 plankton communities- since the enhanced biological complexity brings the experimental work an important step closer to the field.
