Works with

Jeg arbeider med interaksjoner mellom pelagisk fisk i Norskehavet med et fokus på NVG-sild, kolmule og makrell. Videre ser jeg på koblingen mellom dyreplankton og den pelagiske fisken. I arbeidet brukes både analyser av data fra toktvirksomhet og det er en stort fokus på utvikling og bruk av modeller. Modellen er hovedsaklig individbasert modeller av fiskens vandring som funksjon av miljø og mattilgang, men flerbestandsmodeller av fiskeartenes påvirkning på hverandre er og under utvikling.
