I am a freshwater biologist with strong interests in ecological theory and evolution. My current research focus on food webs in lakes, especially the coupling of spatially separated compartments and the role of parasites in the ecosystem. I am also interested in the interactions between ecological and evolutionary processes, especially ecological speciation, evolution of morphological and ecological diversity, and the effects of intraspecific diversity on the ecosystem. The majority of my research is carried out in subarctic lakes, with a focus on European whitefish and Arctic charr populations.
