Research Interests

My main research interests focus on investigating biological-physical interactions in the marine ecosystem by developing and utilizing relevant coupled model systems. This includes spatially explicit Individual Based Model (IBM) for fish early life stages as well as fully coupled 3d ecosystem models. One major purpose of my recent research was to overcome the limitations of lower-trophic-level ecosystem models to simulate and understand changes in the marine food web and higher trophic level production. Thus I was enhancing the framework of the regional ecosystem model ECOSMO by including macrobenthos and fish to create a consistent End-to-End model system ECOSMO E2E.
