About me

I am an environmental scientist and a marine ecotoxicologist with focus on the effects of contaminants in the Baltic Sea within the Baltic Eye project. I also have a research interest in microplastics and marine litter and the environmental problems it causes.

I hold a PhD in Applied environmental science from Stockholm University with focus on Baltic Sea ecotoxicology. I also have a deep interest for science communication and knowledge exchange, both from an applied and a research perspective. These are vital elements of my work as a researcher at the Baltic Sea Centre, and I have a keen interest for making science easy to grasp and accessible for decision makers. 

My overarching aim is to make science matter - for a sustainable development for the Baltic Sea.

Research

My research interests include:

  • Effects of mixture toxicity on benthic organisms

  • Reproduction effects in amphipods

  • Linking biomarker and bioindicator responses

  • Effects of microplastics in the marine environment

  • Chemicals in consumer products

  • Knowledge exchange and knowledge co-production
