Research Interests

I am a biodiversity scientist interested in understanding how community and metacommunity dynamics emerge and persist in freshwater ecosystems. My research strikes a balance between a variety of approaches, including field observations, controlled experiments, computational simulations, conceptual syntheses, and reviews. Through collaboration, I have been transferring my ideas to other ecosystems and taxonomic groups. My long-term research goal is to better bridge basic and applied community ecology to improve our predictive ability of freshwater biodiversity dynamics under anthropogenic pressure.
