Research Interests

I am interested in the role of predation and terrestrial subsidies of organic carbon on the structure of high island freshwater communities, as well as seasonal patterns of competitive release among herbivores in those habitats. I also study the interplay between putative chemical and structural defenses in both freshwater and marine cyanobacteria.
