In this project we develop models and data analysis tools to study biodiversity

Current research topics are:

  • Resource competition

  • Networks on Networks: The interplay of structure and dynamics in spatial ecological network. This is funded as subproject 1 in DFG Research Unit 1748.

  • Cell shapes of marine plankton

  • Trait-based approaches to metacommunities. This is funded by DFG as part of Subproject 1 of the collaborative research project DynaCom.

  • Indices of biodiversity

  • Optimal control of spatial ecosystems

Professor for Mathematical Modelling

I am interested in the theoretical description of complex living systems at the interface of theoretical ecology and applied mathematics
