I study community ecology in aquatic systems. Work in my lab revolves around experimental tests of ecological theory and relies heavily on field experimentation.

The four main themes are, the ecology of symbiosis, the metacommunity concept in aquatic ecosystems, the influence of habitat heterogeneity on community stability, and the effects of perturbations on aquatic communities.
