I am a quantitative marine ecologist, and my overarching research goal entails the use of theory-driven, fundamental science to better inform decision-making processes and ecosystem management in an ever-changing world. I am passionate about making better use of mathematical, statistical and computational tools to integrate physiology and ecology across scales. Transparent and reproducible open science are at the core of my daily working routine, and I mostly use the R programming environment to code my projects.
