Scientific adviser in the field of natural sciences, biology for the Laboratory of Plankton and Shellfish toxicity.
My primary scientific activity work is focused on the study of the ecology and taxonomy of marine phytoplankton with special emphasis on the group of nanoplankton calcite organisms- coccolithophores, toxic species of phytoplankton on shellfish farms and their impact on human health, as well as phytoplankton ecology in trophically loaded systems (fish farms).
