Measuring and modelling the lives of ocean wanderers
Speaker: Dr. Philipp H. Boersch-Supan
Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Geography, University of Florida

Turlington Hall Room 3012
University of Florida
All are welcome to attend.
Albatrosses, penguins, and elephant seals exploit the resources of the world’s largest habitat – the open ocean. Understanding the foraging behaviours and life-history strategies of these fascinating animals is challenging given the vast spatial and temporal scales involved. By combining observations from remote sensing, biologging, and other technologies with mechanistic models, I aim to understand the interplay between oceanic predators and their environment.
Philipp Boersch-Supan (PhD Marine Biology, University of St Andrews, 2014) is a quantitative ecologist with a particular interest in marine ecosystems. His work is aimed at making the most of often sparse ecological data, and bridging the gap between field observations and mathematical models of living systems. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Florida.
What is this view?
You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
