Prof. Karline Soetaert
Researcher & Lead WP2

Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), NL

My Research Interests

My research deals with natural and anthropogenic impacts on the marine environment. The current focus is on effects of fisheries, offshore wind farms, sand waves. I like to work at the interface of biogeochemistry, ecology, chemistry, and physics. Mechanistic modelling is an important part of my research. I am an active contributor to open source software (R packages), and open source data sets.

My Objectives in CoastCarb

Together with the co-leader of WP2, I am responsible for the modelling of trophic networks , benthic-pelagic coupling, and for spatial distribution modeling.
