Ecological modelling

I am a mathematical modeller with a broad research experience covering both physical and biological marine processes. Over the last 8 years or so I have been involved in modelling benthic biogeochemical processes in the North Sea using the ERSEM model. Other areas of experience include development of models of sediment and contaminant transport, seabed disturbance and simple models of estuarine phytoplankton and macroalgal growth for rapid assessment of estuarine nutrient status.
