Dr Neil Banas

Co-investigator, University of Strathclyde

I’m an oceanographer and mathematical ecologist, with a background in physical oceanography.

My current organizing questions: first, given that climate change can push on a marine ecosystem by a dozen separate pathways simultaneously, which pathways are the crucial ones? Second, what is the role of biological complexity (diversity, adaptability, behaviour, life history) in large-scale patterns in the ocean?

I use a range of dynamical model methods from high-resolution, spatially explicit simulations to paper-and-pencil sketches of life history and population dynamics.

I am a co-investigator on the Arctic PRIZE and DIAPOD projects.
