Research interests: I am a freshwater ecosystem ecologist who studies elemental cycling and food web dynamics, and their relevance to ecosystem function and water quality. I ask questions about ecological patterns and processes through a combination of local field studies and data syntheses at broad spatial scales, and my work spans a variety of temperate and tropical ecosystems. My research draws from two traditionally disparate disciplines: local, mechanistic food web ecology and synthesis studies about ecosystems at regional to continental scales. I work with collaborators from various disciplines, including computer science, statistics, and evolutionary biology. Overall, I aim to develop the approaches and concepts to understand how accelerating human-driven changes in terrestrial landscapes and climate are reflected in aquatic ecosystems at local to continental scales.
