Tropical Freshwater Ecology

My research seeks to understand how tropical freshwater ecosystems respond to natural extreme events, but also how anthropogenic activities risk aquatic ecosystem function in the tropics.

I am broadly interested in understanding:
What is the natural variability of tropical aquatic ecosystems, and how do they respond to extreme climatic events (e.g., ENSO, floods, hurricanes)?
What are the effects of urban expansion on aquatic ecosystems?.
