Johannes Nauta

Welcome 🌍

I am Johannes Nauta, and I am a postdoctoral researcher studying complex systems. I am currently a member of the Dept. of Physics of the University of Padua, Italy.

Early 2022 I finished my Ph.D. thesis on computational models of optimal foraging patterns. During my Ph.D. I studied the effects of intra- and interspecific interactions of foragers and focused on how the characteristics of the interaction graph influences (group-) optimal froaging behavior. I additionally studied the influence of the spatial distribution of resources on the foraging efficiency population dynamics. The latter research is in line with my current interests in ecosystem function. I intend to pursue an interdisciplinary approach to complex (eco)systems with specific focus on the long-term stability of ecosystems.

For more information on my research interests, please see ~/research.

Current position (as of January 1st, 2023)

Postdoctoral researcher, Dept. of Physics, University of Padua, Italy.
Member of the CoMuNe Lab research group, lead by Manlio De Domenico.
