I'm an aquatic ecologist interested in how biotic and environmental factors shape body size distributions in freshwater food webs across interacting trophic levels. My study includes different approaches from mesocosm experiments to environmental monitoring in order to investigate prey-predator interactions, energy transfer and ecosystem functioning in aquatic ecosystems.
