Research interests:

  • Calanoid copepod ecology and physiology with focus on Arctic species
  • Impact of climate change especially increasing temperature on calanoid copepods
  • Phenotypic plasticity and its importance for adaptation to climate change

Popular science and outreach:

  • Spring 2015: visit by 4-6 year-old children from Bymyra kindergarten – living benthic and pelagic animals to observe and touch
  • Spring 2015: visit of 11th grade German school class – lecture ‘Arctic biology studies in Tromsø and the Arctic marine ecosystem’ and little excursion of the NFH building including looking at living benthic and pelagic animals
  • Autumn 2011: visit of 11th grade German school class – lecture ‘Calanus in the Arctic’ and lab work ‘identifying zooplankton’.
