Research interests

My research focuses on understanding the structure and functioning of ecosystems. An ecosystem is more than the sum of its parts and by studying interactions between species (e.g. food webs) and their environment (e.g. temperature) we can gain key information about the pathways of energy flow that bring about real change in natural systems. I use a range of approaches from small-scale laboratory experiments, field surveys and large ecological datasets and my work searches for common mechanisms operating across aquatic and terrestrial realms
