My main research interests focus on consumer-resource interactions across gradients of nutrient enrichment and temperature. I use theoretical approaches as well as experimental studies with pelagic crustaceans and algae as model organisms. I am currently working on the effects of producer stoichiometry and food web structure on ecosystem function.
