Research interests

Study the ecological effects of the anthropogenic and natural stressors on aquatic organisms.
Assess ecotoxicological effects of chemical and microbial insecticides on aquatic organisms
Understand the micro-evolutionary potential and ecological consequences of historical contamination.
Investigate how micro-evolutionary responses of a population can be altered by additional immunological stress.
Study patterns and processes of parasitism: disease susceptibility, impact on host, interaction with multiple stress factors.
Studies using model ecosystems (mesocosms) to generate more ecologically relevant assessments.
