Clare Margaret Andvik
I am interested in the movement and effects of contaminants in wildlife, especially marine mammals. I have previously studied the differences in contaminant levels in seal-eating and fish-eating killer whales, and the presence of emerging contaminants in various whale species along the Norwegian coast. As a part of my PhD, I will look at the effects of multiple stressors on Norwegian killer whales.
I am originally from England and moved to Norway in 2014. I have completed both a bachelor and masters at UiO, as well as worked for one year as a research assistant.
