Research Focus

I am interested in the coastal sea. In my research, I use a multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary approach, as linking different research fields provides a more holistic view of the environmental challenges coastal seas are facing. My research is about strong sustainable development and social-ecological systems, with focus on seagrass, fisheries, ecosystem services and management. Of special interest is the linkages between habitat – fish/invertebrates – fisheries – management.
