I am an aquatic ecologist who specialises in fish ecology. My research interests cover the impacts on aquatic fauna of anthropogenic stressors, including invasive alien species (including parasites), habitat loss and climate change. I work on issues ranging from the ecological consequences of biological invasions through to the predicting the impacts of climate change on fish life history traits. I generally apply empirical approaches, including stable isotope analysis and aquatic telemetry and population genetics.
Outputs of my work have included the development of risk management schemes for invasive species, analysis and evaluation of invasive fish eradication programmes and increased understandings of invasion patterns and processes. I work on a range of natural systems (e.g. River Severn, Norfolk Broads, River Frome) and experimental systems using more controlled conditions.
Subjects of recent publications include predicting the impact of climate change on the growth and distribution of cyprinid fishes, the use of biocontrol to manage invasive fish populations and how invasive fish and parasites affect food web structure. I am an associate editor for the Journal of Applied Ecology and Biological Invasions.
