Food Webs

We also study the structure and dynamics of ecological networks describing 'who eats whom', at ecological and evolutionary time scales. Leveraging extensive and robust theory in this field, we study the impact of natural and anthropogenic disturbance to terrestrial and marine communities. 

Impacts of Fisheries

We are evaluating the effects of fisheries on complex communities using concepts and tools of complex networks.

Main Topics

Impacts of Climate Change

Climate change is subjecting ecosystems worldwide to major disturbance, here we study how these perturbations affect the dynamics of food webs. 

Species Invasions

We investigate what factors drive species invasion success and the consequences to the structure and dynamics of food webs.

Evolving Food Webs

Understanding the development of network structure under different environmental conditions necessitates models that evaluate dynamics at evolutionary timescales.
