Professor

Evolutionary aquatic biology


We study fishing-induced evolution, management of recreational fisheries, and behavioural and life-history evolution of fish. We also link fisheries topics to traditional limnology and aquatic ecology. We explore the relationships between well-being and biodiversity of aquatic ecosystems, and ways to improve the status of aquatic nature and wellbeing gains derived from aquatic ecosystems.
