Interests

Research interests

From my start at NIOZ, research on fishes has been a leitmotiv thread in my carrier. After a PhD on recruitment in juvenile plaice in the Wadden Sea, research has been extended to other species and expanded to other areas with the central theme: the functioning of coastal systems as nursery areas for fish species.

From tropical to (sub)arctic coastal areas, habitat quality and quantity in terms of carrying capacity has been studied for a variety of flatfish and other species, interlinked by the analysis to what extend latitudinal patterns in recruitment mechanisms are operating. 

The common tokin in all these sudies has been energy, more specificly, the energetics of a species in relation to the environment studied by means of Dynamc Energy Budgets. In combination with long-term (50-years) observations of the fish fauna of the western Wadden Sea from fyke net catches, long term trends are analysed with the aim to analyse the processes determining the carrying capacity of coastal systems and to predict the impact of climate changes.
