Research interests:

  • Finding the simplest organisation principles for metabolism upon which all life is based
  • Comparing species sensitivity to stressors on the basis of energy budgets
  • Developmental energetics
  • Energetics of starvation
  • Mixotrophy

Important links:

  • Add-my-pet aims to collect:
    • referenced data on the energetics of animal species, such that the parameters of the standard Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) model, and those of its different variants, can be estimated
    • code for estimating DEB parameters from these data
    • DEB parameter estimates
    • properties of species that are implied by these parameters
  • DEBwiki – A collaborative mediawiki powered encyclopedia for Dynamic Energy Budget theory
  • DEBnet – International DEB network comprising experts in a wide range of fields (aquaculture, ecotoxicology, mathematics, economics, ecology and more)
