Nils Lucas Jacobsen

Nils Lucas Jacobsen is a marine biologist (B.Sc. in Biology, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany & International M.Sc. in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea), Ghent University, Belgium) with a strong interest in conservation biology and natural hard substrate ecology. He is a passionate technical scientific diver, diving with mixed gases and closed-circuit rebreathers.

Being keen on innovative technologies, he quantified the effects of structural complexity on marine communities through the application of three-dimensional photogrammetric reconstructions and is currently working on the implementation of automated image-annotation pipelines for monitoring purposes.

In the framework of the COMOFISH project, he is evaluating the effectiveness of bottom-disturbing fisheries management measures on natural hard substrate communities in Belgian waters.
