About me

Assistant professor and docent (equivalent to habilitation) in Marine Ecotoxicology. I received my PhD in Marine Ecology from Stockholm University in 2010. I conducted post-doctoral research at the University of Waikato and University of Otago, New Zealand, and at the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University 2011-2016 (including maternity leave).  I am the main supervisor to PhD students Matias Ledesma and John Taylor.


My research aims to advance our understanding of how individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems react and adapt to natural and anthropogenic stress (e.g. eutrophication, over-fishing, contaminants, invasive species and climate change). I am particularly interested in these topics:

  1. Food web ecology and trophic interactions during environmental change
  2. Long-term ecological research and co-analyses of monitoring data
  3. The role of N-fixing cyanobacterial blooms for fish growth conditions
  4. Applications of stable isotopes in ecology, ecotoxicology and environmental monitoring

My publication list can be found on my Research Gate and Google Scholar profiles (see links) 

Current projects:

Formas (2020-2023): Can cyanobacterial blooms make Baltic Sea fish less toxic? 

Naturvårdsverket (Swedish EPA): Time trends in isotope composition of Baltic cod
