FUNDED GRANTS AND RESEARCH AWARDS
Here are my successful grant and award applications.
UNDERSTANDING THE EFFECTS OF GRAZING ON CYANOHAB TOXICITY
This proposal focuses on quantifying grazing effects on microcystin production in Lake Erie as well as quantifying grazing rates.
USING STABLE ISOTOPES TO IDENTIFY FERTILIZER-DERIVED NITROGEN (N) ASSIMILATION IN MICROCYSTINS
Kenan Graduate Student Award - Kenan Foundation, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ($2,500)
This proposal looks to identify preferential uptake of inorganic or low-molecular-weight organic nitrogen species into cyanobacterial biomass or cyanotoxins during cyanoHABs using 15N, a stable isotope of N, as a tracer.
