Research Question
What will be the combined effect of global and local pressures on marine ecosystem functioning?

My current research is a combination of field observations, lab experiments and modeling to understand the combined effects of local human impacts (focus: offshore wind farms) and global change on marine ecosystem functioning at local and regional scales with the ultimate aim to inform policy.
