Assistant Professor 

Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences.

The overall focus of my research is to understand how benthic ecosystems respond to anthropogenic and environmental disturbances both structurally and functionally. Specifically, my research activities have been guided by three main topics:  1-Responses of benthic communities to eutrophication, 2-Species interaction effects on benthic ecosystem processes, 3- structuring factors of metazoan biodiversity in benthic habitats

The Baltic Sea with its steep natural environmental gradients and heavy human impacts is an ideal system to study such questions. The Baltic Sea fellows is a great opportunity to work multidisciplinary with combined expertise to advance our knowledge in Baltic Sea science.
