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?
