Ryan Guillemette is a 5th year PhD Candidate in the Azam Lab. His ultimate professional goal is to obtain a position as an academic scientist investigating ecological processes responsible for the global emergence and proliferation of aquatic pathogens.
My research focuses on marine bacteria involved in the cycling of climatically active one-carbon (C1) compounds. My postdoctoral project seeks to gain insight into the social life of bacterioplankton in relation to the cycling of C1 compounds, by studying their interactions with other organisms and their potential impact in the marine carbon cycling. The BIOSHARE project is funded by a Marie Curie Outgoing International post-doctoral fellowship and the research will be performed at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (2014-2016) and at the OOB (2016-2017) and mentored by Dr. Ingrid Obernosterer and Prof. Farooq Azam.
