Torbjörn Säterberg
Postdoctoral researcher


I am a postdoctoral researcher developing novel time series modelling tools for ecological questions. At the moment my research encapsulates two main areas: sustainable exploition of communities of interacting fish species; and climate change effects on the population dynamics of interacting species.


I have a background in theoretical ecology. During my PhD I studied food web responses to press perturbations, using mathematical models.
