My primary interest focuses on fisheries oceanography and fish population ecology. I investigate spatial and temporal dynamics of large fish populations in relation to landscape, climate variability, fisheries exploitation and density-dependent processes. Analytical aspects of my work concern the use of statistical models for quantification of ecological processes that regulate variability in marine populations.
