Dr. Gradinger specializes in the dynamics of microbial communities in polar seas. His recent work deals with the structuring role of sea ice for biological processes in Arctic waters. His participation in SBI, BEST/BSIERP and the Arctic Ocean Diversity projects focused on the ice-based microbial food web and the coupling of sea ice, pelagic and benthic realms in Arctic waters.
