Dr Frank Van Veen
Senior Lecturer in Climate Change Biology

Profile

I am an ecologist with a particular interest in the processes that determine the structure and dynamics of networks of interacting species (food webs). By gaining a mechanistic understanding of these complex ecological systems I hope to be able to make predictions on how they, and the services they provide, will respond to environmental change. I am a member of the Ecology and Conservation research group and the Climate Change and Sustainable Futures research theme.
