About Me

Research interests

I am a river ecologist with special interests in disturbance and rehabilitation ecology. I am particularly fascinated by riverine dynamics and the amazing adaptations of aquatic organisms to cope with these environmental variations.

My work tackles two major questions:

  1. Which factors govern resistance and resilience of aquatic communities towards environmental change (e.g. natural disturbances, anthropogenic impact)?
  2. How can practical river management ensure or re-initiate the dynamics that allow self-sustaining aquatic communities to develop?

Projects

How does such compromised bed-load transport affect fish in terms of their feeding and habitat? And what measures can be taken to restore a river's bed-load regime?
Watercourses are among earth's most biodiverse ecosystems. However, they are also under severe pressure from construction work and hydropower generation, among other things.
4’000 river kilometers will be rehabilitated in Switzerland over the course of the coming 80 years – a unique opportunity for learning!
