Modelling for me offers a unique ability to study all the complex interactions that shape marine ecosystems and to understand how they react to all disturbances created by climate change, acidification and human activities. As such, it gives me the opportunity to inform and support the creation of new policies and management strategies aimed at a sustainable development of society.
