Dr. Finkel is a Canada Research Chair in Marine Environmental Ecology and involved in ADDOMex as a co-PI. Dr. Finkel will be working with Dr. Quigg on the laboratory experiments and transcriptomic analyses of how individual phyptoplankton species and communities respond to oil and dispersant under different environmental conditions. Dr. Finkel’s work focuses on how environmental and climate change interacts with physiological, ecological and evolutionary processes to influence phytoplankton communities over a variety of temporal and spatial scales. Dr. Finkel has over 40 peer-reviewed publications (H score 23) in marine environmental research. To learn more about the different research in the Finkel lab: http://mmab.ca/

Dr. Andrew Irwin

Dr. Andrew Irwin (Department Head, Math & Computer Science, Mount Allison University) uses mathematical and statistical models to study phytoplankton physiology and ecology at the population and community level. I will be using bioinformatics tools to analyze RNA transcript data together with physiological data. We are seeking molecular evidence for phytoplankton physiological responses to oil and dispersants used during oil spills. We will use a combination of differential expression of transcripts and predicted gene function to develop a picture of physiological acclimation and stress responses.
