I am part of a small group of applied scientists in the Faculty of Environmental Studies. My interests focus on ecological processes and pollution in lakes. Over the years I have studied acidification, carbon processing in lakes (photochemistry) and eutrophication and have developed several management tools (models) to assist environmental managers.
