Research Areas

Zooplankton ecology, Predatory cladocerans, Aquatic food webs, Biodiversity

I am interested in interactions of zooplankton, as a crucial component of aquatic food webs, with their environment and consequences of these interactions. Having a working experience with a broad scale of water bodies ranging from floodplain pools through lakes of both natural and man-made origin up to the North American Great Lakes, I am intrigued by questions why and how life strategies of zooplankton species differ in various habitats.
