Graduate Research Topic
I'm interested in examining the effects of the invasive macroalga Nitellopsis obtusa (starry stonewort) on the epiphytic community of New York lakes. This aquatic invasive species has recently been spreading in New York and across the Great Lakes Region in the US and Canada. It often forms dense monocultures by outcompeting and displacing native macrophyte species. Previous research has primarily focused on the distribution of starry stonewort, but little has explored its potential ecological impacts.
