I am interested in the impacts of coastal resource use on marine ecosystems in the past, present and future. Over the past 50 years, invertebrate fisheries have increased rapidly around the globe with so far unknown ecosystem effects. I use ecosystem models to understand the impacts of invertebrate fisheries and their management on other species and marine ecosystems as a whole. I am the regional coordinator of the FISH-MIP project, which aims to understand the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems and fisheries, and a science committee member of the Oceans Past Initiative, which aims to extend historical baselines to better understand human impacts on marine ecosystems. I am also a visiting scientist at the Charles Darwin Foundation, Galápagos Islands, where I participate in ecological monitoring and fisheries modelling of the endemic grouper to inform conservation and management.
