Frederik De Boever has been appointed to project 12 which is based at the Scottish Association for Marine Science – SAMS. His research is supervised by Dr. David Green. Originally from Belgium, Frederik completed his Master degree at the University of Ghent in July 2015. His thesis focused on the isolation and idenfication of diatom associated bacteria , where isolated strains wereco-cultivated with the algal host to asses the influence of bacterial pressence on diatom growth and physiology. With a strong interest in biology, environmental science and theoretical ecology, Frederik’s background has allowed him to gain a range of informatics and technical skills as well as develop his fascination with the world of micro-organisms.
