Our aim is to understand how processes at the level of individuals drive dynamics of populations and communities. We focus on individual trade-offs and use trait-based models to explain ecological and evolutionary patterns. Please navigate through our pages to read more about our Research, our Publications, and us.

The group is well connected and networked. Most of us are members of the Hjort Centre for Marine Ecosystem Dynamics". We are a node in the Nordic Centre of Excellence NorMER - Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change, and work package leaders in the EU training network MARmaED.
