My research interests within aquatic ecology are very broad, but initially I focused on competitive interactions between periphyton, phytoplankton and macrophytes, which was also the theme of my thesis. During my research career, I have focused mainly on aquatic food web interactions and on habitat shifts from sediment to water by algae and zooplankton.

 I´m currently involved in three research groups, dealing with: 1. Phenotypic integration in the landscape of fear, 2. Effects of climate change on freshwater ecosystems, 3. Nanoparticles in the environment.
