My research aims at understanding the functioning of living organisms and their interdependence with the abiotic world. I am particularly interested in species interactions and the ecological and evolutionary responses of fish populations to climate change, exploitation by humans and diseases. I use a variety of approaches including lab experiments, mathematical models in combination with empirical data such as size- and stage-structured population models, statistical time-series analysis of large data sets, and state-space modeling.
