Project Description

Dr. Beckler is an assistant research professor in the Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab at the Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in Fort Pierce, Florida. He completed a Ph.D. in chemical oceanography with a minor in inorganic chemistry at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Beckler is currently working to understand the role of sediment-derived iron in serving as a nutrient source to Florida red tides and in enhancing the degradation of hydrocarbons; improve efforts to understand harmful algae bloom formation by developing optical techniques and autonomous measurement platforms; and develop in situ chromatographic techniques for remote detection of harmful algae bloom toxins. His work focuses on developing autonomous instrumentation to measure previously unidentified introductions of iron to coastal waters and will contribute to improved understanding of the influences on Gulf algal blooms.
