I am currently involved in the courses:
- 25303 Mathematical biology
- 25304 Differential equations in biology
- 25314 Computational Marine Ecological Modelling
- 25803 Ocean Life Meeting Series
Send me a mail if you are interested in any of these courses.
I want to understand how life in the ocean is organised, why marine organisms look and act the way they do, and how marine ecosystems react to perturbations like fishing, species removals/invasions or climate change. More specifically I work on:
- Trait-based models of life in the ocean. See http://www.oceanlifecentre.dk
- Size-structured models of marine ecosystems. See the community calculator and the single-species calculator.
- Fisheries induced evolution. See the evolutionary calculator.
Previously I have worked with sand ripples under surface waves and barchan dunes in deserts.
I have a number of possible student projects available for students related to the impact of fishing and climate change on marine and fresh water ecosystems. The projects ranges from applied projects on specific ecosystems to abstract theoretical topics. Send me an email if you are interested in learning more.
