Research interests: Ecology, animal physiology and evolutionary biology

My research aims at understanding the functioning of living organisms and their interdependence with the abiotic world. I am particularly interested in the ecological and evolutionary responses of fish populations to climate change, exploitation and infectious diseases. One of my goals is to link physiological processes at the individual level with the population dynamics and the adaptive evolution of species. I use a variety of approaches including laboratory experiments, statistical analysis of time-series data, and mathematical models in combination with empirical data such as eco-evolutionary models, size-structured population models, and stage-based biomass models.
