Serghei’s primary research interest is to study the interaction between physical and biogeochemical processes in large lakes using a combination of numerical modelling and field studies to investigate specific processes of interest as following: (i) response of phytoplankton communities including harmful algal blooms to changing nutrient loads, physical and biological disturbances and climate change; and, (ii) prediction and development of hypoxia and anoxia in lakes depending on the external nutrient loadings, internal production and variability in climate; and, (iii) winter dynamics of phytoplankton and nutrients in large ice covered lakes.
