In many north temperate and boreal surface waters terrestrial organic matter (tOM) inputs have increased over the past several decades. Increased tOM alters lake ecosystem functions by limiting light and introducing nutrients.
My research focuses on food webs, biodiversity and functioning of aquatic ecosystems. I am particularly interested in their responses to anthropogenic stressors (e.g. eutrophication, acidification, brownification, atmospheric nitrogen deposition, etc.) and climate change.
