Research

My reserch interest encompasses evolutionary biology, population ecology and community ecology. Most studies are theoretical, carried out with modelling approach. The major research topics are:

Food-web structure and population stability

Human activity and its influence on community structure and ecosystem processes

Maintenance mechanism of biodiversity

Game theoretical approaches to evolutionary theory
