My research background is in the physiology, pathology, and ecology of benthic invertebrates, with a particular focus on the ecological role that filter-feeders, i.e. bivalves, play in the ecosystem. I have studied the role of these organisms mitigating the symptoms of eutrophication, reducing the occurrence of harmful and nuisance algal blooms, and restoring ecosystem functions. Also, I have investigated how the environment can affect the health and physiology of the invertebrates themselves, including invasive species.
