Research Summary

I study aquatic biomechanics: how organisms interact with their fluid environment. I use my background in both organismal biology and fluid physics to study how organisms respond to environmental change, influence ecosystem processes, and impact engineered systems. As a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science at Umeå University in northern Sweden, I will investigate how benthic organisms mediate the effects of climate change on sediment- water interactions in northern lakes. I am also interested in how filamentous algae in streams impact hydrological functioning.
