I am particularly interested in river ecosystems in cold regions (alpine, arctic), the effects of catchment management (e.g. artificial drainage, vegetation burning) on rivers in the UK uplands, and aquatic food webs. Feel free to contact me for reprints of papers, or if you are interested in studying/working in our research...
