"Who looks upon a river in a meditative hour, and is not reminded of the flux of all things?" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Freshwater ecosystems provide invaluable services to society, but are among the most imperiled environments on Earth. My research aims to illuminate the often invisible mechanisms that support freshwater ecosystem productivity and resilience, and use this knowledge to contribute to better-informed stewardship. My research employs holistic, ecosystem-based approaches that combine tools and theory from food-web ecology, ecosystem ecology, and system dynamics modeling. Current research themes include: (1) synthesizing ecological impacts of dam removal, (2) investigating the influence of landscape complexity on river food webs, (3) quantifying the impact of ecological subsidies on rivers, (4) assessing the impacts of climate change of Pacific salmon, and (5) developing system dynamics models to inform freshwater restoration and management.
