If it moves it’s potentially interesting! I’m an aquatic ecologist with a behavioural ecological background. My approach to research often focuses on individual animal, or, most of the time, fish behavioural decisions, performance and success, and generally aims to address higher-order effects of these behavioural attributes. The higher-order processes include forager group formation and dynamics, spatio-temporal distributions of individuals in populations, impact of interference on individuals, populations and communities, as well as effects of piscivore and prey behaviours on trophic cascades, oftenmost all linked to management incentives. Recent interests focus on causes and concequences of fish migration, host-parasite interactions between fish and mussels, cod fisheries management and population genetics, win-win solutions for hydropower and the Atlantic eel, as well as physiological processes behind inducible defences.
