About me

I am a Professor of Coastal Biogeochemistry and Scientific Director of the Baltic Sea Centre, Stockholm University, Sweden. One main research focus deals with eutrophication issues of the Baltic Sea and its catchment. We address nutrient pathways in various watersheds and estuaries of the Baltic, investigate large scale phosphorus and oxygen dynamics in the Baltic Sea and estimate the environmental status of the Baltic. Our team was involved in the formulation of the Baltic Sea Action Plan. I coordinated and currently participate in several EU BONUS projects dealing with environmental issues of the Baltic Sea. Within the Baltic Eye team I act as the scientific supervisor of the various projects.

Moreover, I am involved in international studies on carbon dynamics in high latitude watersheds and estuaries and along the entire Siberian Shelf with focus on riverine carbon transports, water column carbon dynamics and GHG emissions.


Current research projects:


COCOA (Nutrient cocktail in coastal zones of the Baltic Sea – improving understanding of the transformation and retention of nutrients and organic matter in the coastal zone)


BLUEPRINT (Biological lenses using gene prints – developing a genetic tool for environmental monitoring in the Baltic Sea)


SWERUS (Swedish – Russian – US Arctic Ocean Investigation of Climate-Cryosphere-Carbon Interactions – The SWERUS-C3 Program –)
