I am interested in understanding how freshwater ecosystems are affected by anthropogenic pressures and how aquatic communities respond to these changes. I am studying the effects of climate change on tropical lowland streams in the Caribbean, mainly assessing the impacts on aquatic macroinvertebrates. My research focuses on the effects of acidification and nutrient concentration change, as a consequence of reduced precipitation, on the physiology of aquatic macroinvertebrates and, ecosystem functioning.
