MARmaED Early Stage Researcher from Germany will start at the Theoretical Ecology Group at the University of Bergen the 1st February 2016.
Tom Langbehn made his PhD at the University of Bergen
I graduated from the International Degree Course Industrial and Environmental Biology at the University of Applied Science Bremen in Germany before commencing a Master in Marine Biology at the University of Bremen. During my studies I had the privilege of spending extended study and research periods in Norway, Svalbard and Iceland. I worked primarily on marine ecology, fisheries and fish biology with a particular focus on adaptation and alternative evolutionary trajectories on species and ecosystem level in a changing climate. Within MARmaED I will investigate how marine fish deal with seasonality and the long polar night as they shift their distribution ranges towards higher latitudes due to a changing climate.
My supervisors are Christian Jørgensen and Øyvind Fiksen from the Theoretical Ecology Group at the University of Bergen.
