My research aims at understanding how fish populations respond to changes in climate, exploitation by humans, and disease spread. I am interested in the ecological, physiological, and evolutionary aspects of these responses. To investigate my research questions, I use numerical models in combination with empirical data (e.g. age- and size-structured population models), statistical time-series analysis of large data sets, simulation modeling, state-space models, as well as lab experiments and fieldwork. I have worked on basic and applied issues in both marine and freshwater systems. Read more about my research interests here
