Marlene Wæge Stubberud
I started my PhD here at CEES in January 2016. I have a bachelor in ecology, evolution and ethology followed by a master’s degree in natural resources management from NTNU. In my master thesis I did sensitivity analyses of a two-sex demographic model to see which parameter(s) the effective population size in house sparrows is most sensitive to.
For my PhD project I will work on the development and analysis of demographic two-sex integral projection models (IPMs) in structured populations to investigate the consequences of sex selective harvesting in a changing environment. As my PhD is part of SUSTAIN, I will look at marine, terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and work with data on pike, cod, moose and trout.
