The above word cloud was produced using publications and proposals. Students in my lab investigate stream ecology, community ecology,
life-history, morphology, ontogeny, and conservation biology. We are interested in
stream dynamics and the relationship between aquatic organisms and environmental properties from small, local habitat scales to broad riverscape scales. Our research has spanned from gastropods to nutrients to algae to fish, with a focus on understanding functional relationships among multiple hierarchical levels (e.g., size, age, trophic position).
My personal research spans biology and physics. Students involved in my biology laboratory are not required to conduct research in physics.
