My work aims to better understand the relationship between human activity and water quality from an ecological perspective. Specifically, I am interested in learning about how human activity can affect the quality of lakes and reservoirs, and the biological communities that inhabit them. Most of my current research involves the study of phytoplankton and their response to environmental changes. Phytoplankton are an important part of aquatic ecosystems because they are great indicators of the quality and condition of their physical and chemical environment. Therefore, studying phytoplankton allows us to learn a lot about the quality of the water we drink.
