I have a broad experience in the fields of marine biology and (aquatic) ecotoxicology. My main field of research is the study of the disposition and effects of contaminants within marine food webs. The last five to ten years also in relation to climate change effects, both in Arctic and boreal areas. My experience includes work with plankton, benthic invertebrates, fish, birds and marine mammals. I also have extensive experience with large- and smaller scale bioaccumulation/distribution and effect studies involving experimental exposure systems for invertebrates and fish.
My main employer is the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA), where I work as a Senior Research Scientist.
