Background and activities
Background: Master and PhD degrees from NTNU and UNIS. Master: trophical interactions between little auks and their zooplankton prey. PhD: light climate in the Arctic during polar night and how it affects the marine pelagic ecosystem; focus on plankton bioluminescence, and light responses of Calanus spp.
Currently working on the project "Taskforce salmon lice": salmon lice infection mechanisms within farmed populations and between farmed and wild populations of salmonids.
