Research Interests: I am broadly interested in studying the ecological consequences of environmental change and climatic events on lake ecosystems. My research focuses on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystem linkages, carbon cycling in lakes, and phytoplankton responses to climate change and storm events. Although climate change is expected to cause more intense and frequent extreme weather events, we only have a basic understanding of how these events might alter lake ecosystems and plankton communities. I use a variety of collaborative approaches including field-based studies, analyzing long-term monitoring data, ecosystem modeling, and global comparison studies.
