I am a marine biologist, and my main area of research is experimental marine ecotoxicology. I have led a series of projects investigating the effects of pollution, ocean acidification and climate change by performing exposure experiments studying a broad range of effect parameters in fish and invertebrates, including northern shrimp, Pandalus borealis, a keystone species in the marine ecosystem.
