My research interests lie in the effects of climate change and anthropogenic activities on the aquatic community and on predator-prey interactions. Furthermore, I study how various environmental parameters influence aquatic biodiversity and individual species. I am also involved in a collaborative effort to produce biodiesel from marine microalgae. I have experience in both freshwater and marine systems, and have worked on every trophic level of the aquatic food web.
