Research Interests

I am interested in the taxonomy, systematics and evolution of the diatoms.  I also study biogeography, as well as applications of diatoms, such as water quality monitoring and biofuels.  My current research is focused on freshwater diatoms of China, India, Russia as well as western North America.  The development of internet-based research tools for diatom research is also one of my interests.
