General Information

Christine's work ranges from local-scale trophic dynamics to global-scale patterns in lake distributions. Christine's PhD research explores the abundance, distribution, and food web ecology of California alpine lake ecosystems in the Sierra Nevada. She conducted Masters work describing the ecology and dispersal potential of aquatic insect communities in the Lakes Basin region of California and since then has been increasingly focused on high alpine freshwater ecosystems more broadly as a potential model for testing deeper ecological questions. She is interested in the mechanisms that govern lake food web structure and function across heterogeneous mountain landscapes, and in understanding limnology patterns occurring across scales.
