Research Interests

  • Linkages between biodiversity and ecosystem function
  • Detritus-based food webs
  • Nutrient mobilization effects on aquatic ecosystems
  • Food web stoichiometry
  • Global change effects on aquatic ecosystems

Research Projects

Responses of detritus-based food webs to nutrient enrichment; How invasive species affect species richness and ecosystem function; How nutrient enrichment affects the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function; How changes in nutrient stoichiometry affects food web structure and function; How urbanization and other watershed land use affects biodiversity, food web structure and ecosystem function in streams
