Research Interests

My research interests include nutrient dynamics and water quality, aquatic community structure, ecotoxicology, restoration ecology, and disturbance ecology.  In particular, the aim of my work is to examine how changes in aquatic environments (freshwater, estuarine, marine and wetland) affect organisms, communities, and ecosystems, and how I could use information about these ecosystems to address applied issues, including monitoring, conservation and restoration.
