I am an ecologist doing research on animal population dynamics and the factors (both biotic and abiotic) influencing them. I work mostly with aquatic species (marine, freshwater) and I have expertise in capture-recapture and occupancy models, that I use to produce applied ecological knowledge. My research at CCR is focused on the population dynamics and spatial ecology of coastal fish and lobster within and outside marine protected areas (MPAs) in Skagerrak, with the aim to create robust scientific knowledge for management purposes.
