I lecture on different courses at DEEP including:


-Marine Biology

-Ecology I

BSc and MSc  projects

I am also interested in supervising BSc (kandidat) and MSc (master) projects in subjects relevant to my research interests. If you are looking for a project in marine ecology or ecotoxicology don't hesitate to contact me.



The overall focus of my research is to understand how ecosystems respond to anthropogenic and environmental disturbances both structurally and functionally. Specifically, my research activities have been guided by four 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; 4- Toxicity of mixtures of contaminants on ecosystem function

Ongoing projects

2014-2016- A metagenetic approach to uncover metazoan diversity in aquatic sediments: Determining the effects of the invasive polychaete Marenzelleria on meiofaunal diversity- Formas

2015-2016- Cs-137+134 in marine benthic food webs:understanding effects and trophic transfer. Swedish Radiation Protection Agency

2015-2018-Responses of pelagic-benthic coupling to environmental change in the Baltic Sea- Formas
