Boris

Espinasse

Marie Curie Fellow

 

The rate of change in the ocean outpaces our current knowledge growth; novel technologies will further our understanding of processes in the little researched high seas

Research interests:

Mesoscale dynamics of zooplankton community -

Influence on higher trophic levels -

Using natural biogeochemical tracers to describe marine predator environment

 

 

When not doing science, Boris can be found skiing.

Nicholas

Gosset

PhD Candidate

Studying plankton to grasp the big picture of the ocean in a changing climate

Research interests:

Zooplankton ecology, physiology, taxonomy - Spatiotemporal patterns of zooplankton - Polar regions  

When not doing science, Nicolas can be found doing anything outside including, but not limited to surfing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing, sailing or teaching others how to sail.
