Research Interests

Currently, my main research interests are: 1) The characterization of traditional and novel stressors acting towards aquatic ecosystems; 2) Understanding the effect of these multiple stressors on the structure and function of these systems; and 3) the development of methodologies to better incorporate the previous points into regulatory and management frameworks.

The bulk of my research takes place at the IISD - Experimental Lakes Area where i carry out ecosystem-scale studies using mesocosms or whole lakes to characterize the fate and effects of contaminants in aquatic ecosystems.
