Forschungsinteressen

  • Invasion ecology
  • Vectors of species introduction
  • Community dynamics during transportation of species
  • Life-history traits of non-indigenous taxa
  • Adaptation of species to novel environments

Projekte

  • Determining if species from a particular region (i.e., Ponto-Caspian, Northern Europe or Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River) better tolerate and acclimate to environmental and biological conditions of non-native areas
  • Salinity tolerance of non-indigenous species and transitions of species from marine to brackish and freshwater habitats and vice versa
