Knowledge areas
 Community and ecosystem ecology
- Biodiversity, ecosystem functioning, energy and nutrient flux across ecosystems 
- Freshwater and marine ecosystems

 Global change, from habitat alterations to changes in climate, causes distributional shifts in species composition and species extinctions. My major goal is to quantify how species functional diversity and functional composition affect important ecosystem processes, such as organic matter decomposition and biomass growth. Most of my work is focused on aquatic ecosystems, both freshwater and marine.
