Assistant Professor of Environmental Aquatic Science, Faculty of Science



Roseanna's research focuses on understanding climate, nutrient, and human driven lake ecosystem change over timescales of 100s to 1000s of years. I am particularly interested in arctic and subarctic lake ecosystems, which are highly sensitive to a warming climate and currently undergoing large scale change.

Research Summary

Research interests include:

  • freshwater invertebrates (such as Chironomidae, non-biting midges) as a proxy for past climate and lake ecosystem conditions
  • changes in lake methane production with changing climatic and environmental conditions
  • development and application of statistical tools to increase our understanding of complex systems, such as ecosystems
  • human-driven lake ecosystem change
