Thematic Research Group: Concepts and Computation in Ecology and Evolution (C2E2)
Our research activities are:
Advanced statistical analysis
We perform a wide range of advanced parametric statistical analyses, including: mixed effects models (incl. phylogenetic regressions and quantitative genetics), Bayesian inference, Capture-Mark-Recapture (CMR), network analyses and spatial analyses using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing.
Analytical and simulation modelling
We study the evolution of mate choice, dispersal, speciation and virulence using both analytical models (adaptive dynamics, ODE) and simulations (spatial and non-spatial agent based models).
We develop methods for the analysis of genomic datasets, geodatabases, data collected from camera traps and GPS collars, spatial assignment of organisms based on their isotopic signatures, as well as general computational toolkits.
