Dr Christensen specializes in ecosystem modelling—including data-driven ecosystem model construction, coupling of models integrating physical, biogeochemical and ecological components, and predicting impact of climate change . He is known for his work as a leader and developer of the Ecopath project, an open source ecosystem modelling software system widely used for ecosystem based management and increasingly for environmental impact assessment . His recent publications have described global ocean models, studied global fish biomass trends, and used habitat capacity models as part of the toolbox for predicting impact of climate change.
