Expertise Profile

 Dr. Lomas’ primary interest is studying the ecological linkages between phytoplankton functional diversity and nutrient biogeochemical cycling, now and in a changing ocean (primarily ocean acidification). He is involved in several projects, including: examining long-term patterns in phytoplankton diversity and relationships to ocean carbon and other biogenic nutrient cycling; the role of winter mixing on altering phytoplankton community structure and enhancing biologically mediated carbon export; and utilization of dissolved organic phosphorus substrates by phytoplankton taxonomic groups. He is also an adjunct faculty of University of Rhode Island.
