Research area

  • Biogeochemical Modelling


My research is centered around modelling plankton diversity, in particular regarding trophic interactions of zooplankton. I use trait-based plankton models on the global scale (3D biogeochemical ocean models) as well as for simulating time series or mesocosm studies. Currently, I am investigating global plankton trait biogeography, diversity trends and model sensitivity to formulations of trophic interactions in scenarios of global change.
