Introduction
I am currently working at the Department of Biological and Geographical, University of Huddersfield (UK). I am a PhD student with an interest in community ecology. My research uses taxonomic and functional approaches to explore drought refuges and the processes structuring aquatic macroinvertebrate metacommunities among multiple freshwater waterbodies (i.e. reaches, backwaters, instream and floodplain ponds) in an intermittent river network.

Ponds are among the most biodiverse and ecologically important freshwater habitats globally and may provide a significant opportunity to mitigate anthropogenic pressures and reverse the decline of aquatic biodiversity. Ponds also provide important contributions to society through the provision of ecosystem services. Despite the ecological and socie...
