My research is on 1) long-term ecological research of a regulated river (Nakdong River), 2) ecological mechanism of plankton blooms in a regulated river system, 3) food web dynamics in the flood-plain wetlands, 4) impact of aquatic invasive species, 5) scientific understanding of traditional knowledge and culture in the wetlands. My laboratory studies diverse taxa and wide-ranging issues in the study of aquatic ecosystems.
