Professional Interests

Aquatic ecology, focused on:

  • Community and ecosystem ecology of shallow lakes and wetlands.

  • Role of food-web interactions in the alternative stable state model for shallow lakes. 

  • Ecology of fish, aquatic invertebrates, and submerged macrophytes.

  • Biotic and abiotic factors responsible for the structure of aquatic food webs.

  • Biotic influences on species diversity in shallow lakes.

  • Stoichiometric relationships in aquatic habitats.

  • Modeling aquatic ecosystems and processes, biometry.
