My research has mainly contributed to filter feeding, bioenergetics and fluid mechanical analysis of filter-pumps in marine invertebrates; Assimilation, respiration, energy budgets, growth; Costs of growth; Growth efficiency; Biological filter-pumps; Biomixing; Fluid mechanics; Population grazing impact; Particle capture mechanisms; Benthic-pelagic coupling; Biological structure and nutrient dynamics; Grazing impact of benthic filter feeders; Implications of density driven currents for interaction between jellyfish and zooplankton. Several research sojourns, among them: Skidaway (USA), Woods Hole (USA), University of Wales (U.K.), Kristineberg Marine Research Station (Sweden)
