Academic interests

I am a marine scientist, with expertise in marine ecology, ecotoxicology and chemical analytical techniques. My academic background is within the area of ecotoxicology, specifically impact and biological effects of environmental pollution on marine organisms within integrated environmental assessment approach.

At IBV, UiO I am employed in the project “dCod 1.0: decoding systems toxicology of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) – environmental genomics for ecosystem quality monitoring and risk assessment”.

My academic skills vary from field and laboratory research and projects coordination. I have participated in various international scientific activities on marine environmental issues, e.g. “Expedition Marine Plastic 2015”, Danish National expedition Galathea3, BALCOFISH (BONUS project), DANIDA project “Coastal fishery in Mtwara, Tanzania”, and currently involved in a DANIDA project: Environmental Monitoring establishment in Zanzibar, WP II under the Building Stronger Universities Phase III (BSU-III) project, Zanzibar, Tanzania.
