Senior Marine Ecologist - Project leader

Already from the beginning of my scientific career, research on marine environments have been the lead focus in my biological and ecological studies. My PhD on marine ecological communities is mainly focussed on explaining shifts in population dynamics in all trophic levels in both the present and the past. Not only by analyzing shifts in marine populations, also determine physiological requirements in different life stages of important marine species (lower- and higher trophic levels) is important in order to predict how marine sea food webs will chance due to (a)biotic factors in marine environments. Combining the analysis of historical data, the collection of field work data and the inventory of potential important nursery habitats, will tell us more about how marine populations on larger world wide scale might change in the future.

Focus points:

My focus point are on marine-life habitat, marine species populations dynamics, and interactions among organisms and their surrounding environment including their abiotic (non-living physical and chemical factors that affect the ability of organisms to survive and reproduce) and biotic factors (living things or the materials that directly or indirectly affect an organism in its environment).
