Mes recherches visent à évaluer les impacts de l’activité humaine sur la biodiversité des lacs et des rivières. Je m’intéresse particulièrement aux causes et aux conséquences du changement de biodiversité au sein des écosystèmes aquatiques dans les paysages anthropisés, notamment dans les lacs et les rivières dont le bassin versant comporte une forte présence humaine et un usage intensif des terres. Je cherche aussi à déterminer si l’évolution rapide peut, dans une certaine mesure, prévenir une perte de biodiversité dans les milieux anthropisés.
