Biography

My research expertise is focused on aquatic ecology. My research topics have included biofilm biomass, benthic diatom assemblage and ecological stoichiometry (C:N:P) of key aquatic food web components. I have been involved in extensive water quality and aquatic ecosystem health monitoring projects with health indicators including water chemistry, biological patterns (i.e. algae, macroinvertebrate and fish), benthic metabolism and nutrient cycling.

I am particularly interested in understanding the ecology of primary producers and the ecological functions they provide to support aquatic food webs. My research will continue to focus on how biotas interact with their environment and its management implications.

I am currently involved in research for The Commonwealth Environmental Water Office, Long-Term Intervention Monitoring Project
