STRIDE Brown Bag Lunch at IACS

Wednesday, January 30, 2019 - 12:00 to 13:00
Institute for Advanced Computational Science, Lake Dr, Laufer Center, Stony Brook, NY 11794, USA

Using Science to Build Public Policy that Protects Citizens from Harmful Algal Blooms

Speaker: Christopher Gobler, Professor, School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences

Christopher Gobler conducts research on plankton ecology, with a broad focus on the factors that promote phytoplankton growth (organic and inorganic nutrients), as well as factors that are responsible for algal mortality (zooplankton, viruses, filter-feeding bivalves) in diverse aquatic ecosystems. A primary focus of the lab within the field of plankton ecology has been the study of harmful algal blooms (HABs), having investigated blooms of brown tide both locally and around the U.S.

STRIDE is an innovative training program that provides STEM graduate students with unique interdisciplinary skills to assist, create, and eventually lead in the translation of complex data-enabled research into informed decisions and sound policies.
