Prof Thomas Anderson
My area of research is marine ecosystem modelling and associated biogeochemical cycles, which is fundamental to the global carbon cycle and climate science. Particular interests include: (1) the dynamics of marine ecosystems, e.g. bottom-up versus top-down control; (2) ocean biogeochemistry including carbon cycling, export and sequestration, and dissolved organic matter and the microbial loop; (3) stoichiometry (the coupling between multiple elements), especially zooplankton and bacteria; (4) model complexity and complexity science; (5) the history and philosophy of science.
