Vermaire’s research interests include how environmental changes, particularly land use and climate change, are impacting freshwater ecosystems. His research focuses on three broad areas: impacts of climate warming and nutrient enrichment on lakes and streams; ecosystem resilience, regime shifts, and recovery in freshwater systems; and the importance of extreme events (e.g. droughts, storm surges, permafrost slumps) in altering aquatic ecosystems.
