Expertise & Interests

Overview / specialty        Freshwater ecologist who specialises in the understanding of multiple stressors in structuring freshwater biodiversity, macrophyte and macroinvertebrate monitoring and in the biological analysis of lake sediments. Specific expertise in plant and macroinvertebrate macrofossil taxonomy and chironomid head capsule and has research interests in the effects of eutrophictaion, hydrological connectivity, dispersal and exotic species in lake ecosystem structure and function on different time-scales. Most of my work focuses on sites in the UK but I am currently working on lakes in Central and South America
