About me


Ready to take vegetation samples in Stockholm archipelago.
Ready to take vegetation samples in Stockholm archipelago.

I use field inventories, field- and mesocosm experiments to study the relation between aquatic vegetation, invertebrates and fish and how these interactions affect, and is affected by, the environment.

More specifically, the overall aim of my PhD project is to assess role of functional traits of aquatic vegetation for the functioning and management of coastal bays in the Baltic Sea. Examples of functional plant traits are morphological and life-history characteristics such as shoot and root biomass, length, structural complexity and reproduction mode.

I work in Johan Eklöf's group.


I have been teaching at the courses Marine Biology, the Environment of the Baltic Sea (Östersjöns miljö) and Ecology I.
