Hi, my name is Philippe Massicotte. As a numerical ecologist, the R statistical computing language is an important part of my daily workflow. I mainly use R for environmental modelling and data manipulation. In this not-so-serious blog, I will present my recent R work as well as various data visualizations such as the TidyTuesday challenges.
Some researches I am currently working on:
Understand how surrounding landscapes of aquatic ecosystems determine the biogeocycling of dissolved organic matter (DOM).
Understand how DOM, as the main agent driving the optical properties of aquatic ecosystems, influences their functioning.
Quantify how the complex mosaic composed of ice, snow, leads, melt ponds and open water influence underwater light regime in aquatic ecosystems.
Influence of available irradiance under heterogeneous sea-ice conditions on phytoplankton primary production estimates.
I am always looking for collaborations. Do not hesitate to contact me!
Scientific interests (no specific order)
Aquatic ecosystems (limnology & oceanography)
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) and carbon cycling
Aquatic optic (fluorescence, absorbance, remote sensing)
Numerical analyses/modelling (multivariate analyses, spatial analyses, system dynamic)
