Personal: I am an aquatic ecologist broadly interested in food webs and spatial subsidies, in particular, resource subsidies between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems and how these fluxes affect communities in recipient systems.
The magnitude, form, and timing of resource subsidies across aquatic-terrestrial boundaries can be affected by abiotic (e.g. climate change), biotic (e.g. community assembly, invasive species, trophic cascades), and anthropogenic factors (e.g. pesticides, contaminants). I am interested in investigating how these elements may impact not only aquatic food webs, but also cross-boundary resource fluxes and potential cascading effects in recipient systems.
