I am an ecologist assessing and forecasting effects of toxicants and environmental stressors in aquatic ecosystems.
My interest is the understanding of mechanisms determining the behavior of biological systems. The results obtained are used to provide advice for the risk assessment and management of toxicants. This includes the assessment of long-term effects of low toxicants doses, the development of the SPEAR indicator system and the sustainable control of mosquitos.
I published my results in 119 ISI listed publications cited 2900 times, h-index 31 (03.2015).
