Baltic Sea Fellows

As a continuation of the governmental funding of strategic Baltic Sea research, a new interdisciplinary network of young Baltic Sea researchers was formed at Stockholm University. During 2018-2022, the Baltic Sea Fellows, consisting of Post Doctoral researchers, Assistant Professors and Associate Professors at seven of Stockholm University's departments will perform cross-disciplinary projects concerning environmental challenges in the Baltic Sea.

SFO-funding for Baltic Sea research

Stockholm University intensifies the strategic Baltic Sea research. Baltic Sea Fellows gathers young researchers at various departments of the University, in a joint marine interdisciplinary research team at the Baltic Sea Centre. This initiative is a development of the governmental funding of strategic research areas (SFO). 

Welcome to join this year's conference where we high-light Baltic Sea research at Stockholm University. Abstract call is open until 30 August and contributions from all marine disciplines are welcome.

Members of the Baltic Sea Fellows

Currently, the group consists of eleven researchers.

Elias Broman, Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences

I use modern molecular tools and bioinformatics to investigate cross community interactions between benthic prokaryotes and meiofauna and how it affects sediment metabolic functions.

Anna Christiernsson, Department of Law

My research mainly concerns the role of law in governing complex and dynamic ecosystems and achieving environmental targets and the interplay between law and ecology. 

Wei-Li Hong, Department of Geological Sciences

I especially interested in how methane, as a critical species for the global climate and carbon budget, interfere the cycling of other elements as well as the biosphere.

Fernando Jaramillo, Department of Physical Geography

I study the historical and future effects of human activities and climate change on the water cycle and water resources such as tropical and temperate wetlands, hydrological basins and reservoirs.

Agnes Karlson, Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences

I study how data (stable isotopes and elemental ratios) on individuals and populations from different trophic levels, from long-term time series can be used to validate large scale models.

Inga Koszalka, Department of Meteorology

The focus of my current research is on mesoscale- and regional ocean circulation, its space-time variability as well as ocean interactions with cryosphere, atmosphere and biosphere.

Camilla Lienart, Tvärminne Zoological Station, Baltic Bridge collaboration

I aim to understand how natural or human induced long-term changes in organic matter quality and availability affects food webs, from individuals to community level.

Francisco Nascimento, 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.

Christian Stranne, Department om Geological Sciences

My research involves numerical modeling of methane transport and utilization of wideband sonar systems for mapping of thermohaline stratification, turbulence and other features in the water column.

Marlene Ågerstrand, Department of Environmental Sciences

My research concerns regulatory ecotoxicology and the aim of my work is to improve the scientific basis and increase the transparency and predictability of hazard and risk assessments of chemicals.

Xiaole Sun, Baltic Sea Centre

I study how biogeochemical processes respond to climate change in marine systems and how they drive sediment-water-air fluxes of carbon dioxide and methane, especially in coastal areas.
