Research interests:

  • Plankton ecology with a main emphasis on phytoplankton and zooplankton
  • The impact of changing sea ice conditions and associated effects on phytoplankton and ice algal communities
  • Ecosystem structure and energy flow of Arctic marine food webs including fatty acid throphic markers and stable isotope studies.

Running national and international projects:

  • The Nansen Legacy (2018-2022)
  • Arctic Ecosystem Monoitoring: Pelagic study in Kongsfjorden (2010->)
  • MOSJ: Pelagic study in Kongsfjorden (2009->)

Completed national and international projects:

  • N-ICE2015: Ecosystem dynamics in a high-Arctic pack ice environment (5 Jan 2015–30 Jun 2015)
  • CLEOPATRA II: Climate effects on planktonic food quality and trophic transfer in the Arctic marginal ice zone (1 Jul 2012–30 Jul 2015)
