Simulations of events in different systemsIn my research I make computer models to simulate events in different systems. Above all, I study the dynamics of material growth and food webs.
In my research on material physics, I use classical molecular dynamics and simulate how atoms move when the materials grow. By controlling growth, one can control the structure of the material and hence its properties.
In the research on the dynamics of food webs I make simulations of ecosystems' susceptibility to disruption. The goal of this research is to increase our knowledge of how ecosystems function and how they respond to different types of disturbances.
