Graham J. C. Underwood

Professor of Marine and Freshwater Biology, University of Essex

I am a marine and freshwater biologist, particularly interested in the the interactions between microbes (algae and bacteria), nutrient and element cycling, and how these 'bottom up' process feed through into ecosystem functioning. I have broader interests in the biology of invertebrates, habitat use and fragmentation on the coast, coastal geomorphology and sea level rise. My research is based in the U.K., but I have also carried out research in the Baltic, Mediterranean and South African environments, tropical systems in the Indo-pacific and the Bahamas, and more recently studying Antarctic and Arctic sea ice communities.
