I am an aquatic community ecologist and paleolimnologist, and I use fossil algal and cyanobacterial pigments, and other biological and chemical indicators from lake sediments, to examine historical changes in algal communities in Florida lakes that result from environmental change or anthropogenic activities. Current projects include the paleolimnology and contemporary limnology of central Florida lakes, and Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) applications in paleolimnology.
