Postdoctoral researcher

Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences.

I’ve done a PhD with a focus on microbial diversity and adaption in Baltic Sea hypoxic sediments (so called “dead zones”). In my current postdoc project I am using modern molecular tools and bioinformatics to investigate cross community interactions between benthic prokaryotes and meiofauna (benthic animals < 1 mm) and  how it affects sediment metabolic functions. The aim of the project is also to link prokaryotic-meiofauna interactions in the sediment to benthic-pelagic exchange of greenhouse gases, as well as adaptation to future climate change scenarios.​
