We are two ecologists both specialized in interdisciplinary research and interested in modelling and network analysis.
Many many thanks to Uygar Özesmi for his support in developing the FCMapper and for great discussions on- and offline.

His main scientific interests and expertise are: the use and development of participative methods and models especially in the wide field of sustainability research.
