Research topics & objectives

Our research is focused on theoretical ecology and evolutionary biology, in particular on modelling interactions between ecological and evolutionary processes on various temporal and spatial scales.

We are interested in two major interconnected research areas:

  1. The causes and consequences of different kinds of diversity (in particular intraspecific genetic, phenotypic, and chemical diversity), and
  2. The biology of small populations, i.e. the ecological and eco-evolutionary processes that determine whether a small population persists or goes extinct.

Environmental change and fluctuating selection are also a cross-cutting theme. To address our research questions, we build stochastic and deterministic mathematical models and study them using analytic approaches, numerical methods, and computer simulations. Also, we are always interested in collaborating with empiricists to contrast our models with ecological and genetic data.
