Research interests

Research on the diversity and interaction of microorganisms in fresh and brackish water ecosystems, with the focus on analysis of biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur under anthropogenic pollution and eutrophication conditions. Assessment of the functioning and condition of vulnerable aquatic environments such as the Curonian Lagoon of the Baltic Sea and lakes of karstic origin. A particular attention is paid to the anthropogenic impact on the formation of water quality in lakes and reservoirs. Assessment of the state of water bodies heavily impacted by human activities, setting of water protection goals, and selection of measures to achieve water protection goals.
