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?

Do fish and invertebrates like the Rolling Stones?
Watercourses are among earth's most biodiverse ecosystems. However, they are also under severe pressure from construction work and hydropower generation, among other things.
