Research interests

My main interest is describing the impacts of human activities in stream communities, taking into account a wide range of approaches, from laboratory experiments to field observational and manipulative works. I focus on linking the traditional gap between the ecotoxicological-biochemical methodologies and the ecosystemic-biogeochemical approximations. I have been involved in projects that deal with the effects of exotic plantations, water nutrient enrichment, water acidification, water diversion or pollution coming from waste water treatment plants, integrating physiological-to-community level approaches.
