Information about Dr. Rüdiger Voss


Rudi Voss studied Fisheries Biology at Kiel University. In 2002 he earned his doctorate in this topic. After six years as project leader at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, he joined the inter-disciplinary working group on environmental and resource economics at the department of economics of Kiel University in 2008, which was established within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence ‘The Future Ocean’. Rudi is a specialist in ecological-economic modeling. He investigates trade-offs arising from alternative management scenarios and quantifies the consequences of e.g. environmentally-driven recruitment variability in fish. He significantly contributed as Case Study leader to several EU-projects on the Baltic. Rudi is engaged in developing integrated assessment and integrated advice for Baltic Sea ecosystem-based fisheries management as well as improving the Baltic multispecies assessment and management. Rudi is also the coordinator of the PhD programme “Quantitative Economics” at Kiel University.

Research questions

  • How can fisheries assessment and management move from a single species to multispecies and finally ecosystem approach?
  • How will climate change affect food web structures and fish stock productivity?
  • How can trans-disciplinary research be brought to life, i.e. how to best communicated to and work together with different sets of stakeholders?
  • What are major trade-offs between ecosystem services under different management options?
  • How will climate change and human pressures impact on biodiversity?
