My Phd thesis is focused on 1) Τhe study of the structure and function of coastal food webs 2) Τhe impacts of overfishing on coastal food webs. With underwater visual surveys, I collect and analyze quantitative data of various trophic levels. My further research interest includes the application and development of ecosystem-based, ecological status indices.
