  • Freshwater aquatic ecology
  • Impacts of human activities and climate change on aquatic ecosystems
  • Inland fisheries assessment and management

I am an ecologist researching freshwater fish and fisheries in rivers and lakes. I use empirical data, ecological theory, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to improve our understanding of freshwater ecology and fisheries science in order to inform conservation and management actions. I am particularly interested in the impacts of human activities (e.g., urbanization and exploitation) on aquatic habitats, freshwater fish biodiversity and fisheries resources.
