I have been conducting research and teaching at USF since 2003.


Amanda Boller, PhD Candidate

Different forms of RubisCO discriminate against 13CO2 at different rates. I measure isotope discrimination by RubisCOs from diatoms, coccolithophores, and rhodophytes.

Kristy Menning, Masters Candidate

I am using a pharmacological approach to understand bicarbonate transport by deep-sea bacterium Thiomicrospira crunogena.

Rene Wiesner, PhD Candidate

I am interested in the effects of elevated atmospheric CO2 on the role of freshwater algae in carbon capture.

Mary Mangiapia, Masters Candidate

I use mutagenesis to uncover the molecular underpinnings of bicarbonate transport by T. crunogena  I also use genome data to compare the energetics  of carbon fixation by microorganisms.
