…with plenty of Alexandrium cysts to count and many questions to think about over Christmas



Visit at Cambridge

Interdisciplinary science: Aleksandra visited John Taylor (Department of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge) to discuss possible collaborations and to talk about the “Dynamics of Phytoplankton Blooms in Experiments and the Real World”.


Course on Structural Equation Modeling

Structural equation modelling (SEM) is a multivariate statistical technique used to test the direct and indirect effects of multiple interacting factors. Between 17-19 October, a group of 16 graduate students from the University of Helsinki used their creativity to construct SEMs for their research questions. The course was organised by the DENVI Doctoral Programme and led by Dorothee Hodapp (Helmholtz Institute for Marine Functional Biodiversity, Germany) and Aleksandra Lewandowska (UH).
