RESEARCH

My research characterizes population and community responses of freshwater organisms to climate change. I use empirical and modeling work to 1) measure the impacts of changing temperatures and hydrology on the phenology, abundance, and diversity of freshwater life and 2) predict the consequences of these impacts to coupled human-natural ecosystems. Much of my recent work is at the interface of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. For example, I study how rapid warming in the Arctic influences Arctic mosquitoes and their role as pests of caribou. Please see my publications for an idea of the various projects I have completed.
