I am marine ecologist with a keen interested in evolution and the ecology and biography of environmental change, with a fascination for polar ecosystems and the ocean twilight zone. My research currently revolves around the understanding of mechanism at the individual level underlying macroecological and macroevolutionary patterns. Central aspects of my work are life-history theory, physiology and the role of the light regime in governing foraging interactions and consequently species distributions. I enjoy thinking broadly, to link data with theory and models, and I find interest in diverse biological disciplines.
