About me

My research interests revolve around freshwater environments; the most important ecosystems on our planet, in my opinion. I have recently started a lectureship, where I can build on my expertise in freshwater science and indulge my love of freshwater biodiversity and answer three fundamental research questions that have amazed me since undergrad; i) what is that?, ii) why is it here? and iii) what does it do? 

My PhD was based on the ecological impacts of reintroduced beavers to Scotland, particularly their herbivory impacts on freshwater plants and the effect of beaver dams on pond and stream invertebrates. Publications and technical reports can be found on my researchgate page (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Alan_Law5).
