My research focus is to underpin the impacts of environmental changes on cellular physiology and processes of toxic cyanobacteria with the aim of better understanding population and community dynamics


Savannah is a PhD researcher at the Aquatic Ecology department of NIOO-KNAW. She graduated with a Bachelor in Chemical Engineering in 2016 from the American University of Beirut, and a Master in Freshwater and Marine Biology from the University of Amsterdam in 2022. Her research interests include ecological stoichiometry and the impact of nutrient ratios in the environment on cellular functioning and responses. Specifically, in her PhD she is focusing on carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus impacts on the toxicity of freshwater cyanobacteria.
