My research focuses on food webs, biodiversity and functioning of aquatic ecosystems.
My research focuses on food webs, biodiversity and functioning of aquatic ecosystems. I am particularly interested in their responses to anthropogenic stressors (e.g. eutrophication, acidification, brownification, atmospheric nitrogen deposition, etc.) and climate change. My studies cover a broad range of ecosystems including coastal waters, rivers, ponds and lakes, and I frequently apply ecological tracers such as fatty-acid biomarkers and stable isotopes to investigate ecosystem processes and food-web dynamics in the changing environment. My on-going projects include:
Bachelor/Master students who are interested in freshwater ecology are welcome to contact me for potential thesis projects.
