Fields of Activity

  • Research on alternative management approaches, such as RTI (Real-Time Incentives)
  • Research on the human dimension of bycatch mitigation in the small-scale gillnet fishery
  • Research on governance in the context of the Common Fisheries Policy
  • Research on human responses to alternative management approaches
  • Simulation studies on the consequences of alternative fishing patterns
  • Contribution to ICES (WGMARS, ADGCS and WKAPSIHD) and STECF expert working groups
  • Member of the editorial board of the ICES Journal of Marine Science
  • Ombudsperson for good scientific practice

Research Interests

  • How to apply the behavioural sciences, such as behavioural economics and behavioural biology, to improve fisheries management and to align the interest of the individual (e.g. the fisherman) with the interest of the group (e.g. all fishers, the society, etc.)
  • Innovative fisheries management; the RTI (Real-Time Incentive) fisheries-management system
  • Mixed-fisheries management
  • Management Strategy Evaluation
  • Fisheries-induced evolution
