As an ecosystem ecologist, I'm interested in understanding fluxes and transformations of matter and energy in aquatic ecosystems. As a CIRC researcher, I will work to understand how nitrogen is fixed and processed in sub-arctic lakes and what may limit the external and internal supplies of nitrogen for biota.
