I study aquatic biomechanics: how organisms interact with their fluid environment. I use my background in both organismal biology and fluid physics to study how organisms respond to environmental change, influence ecosystem processes, and impact engineered systems.
I am an ecologist and biochemist with a strong interest in northern ecosystems and their responses to climate change. I have been working on geothermally warmed ecosystems in Iceland, unraveling natural long-term warming effects on the ecosystem C and N cycle and on plant physiology.
My research aims to better understand how primary production in lakes is affected by climate change. I am looking into both direct and indirect effects of climate change on pelagic and benthic algae production, and what potential implications these have on energy- and nutrient transfer to higher consumers in lakes.
I am interested in the ecology and biogeochemistry of mountain lakes. In my current research, I try to better understand how whole-lake primary productivity and respiration relate to water column stratification, light, and nutrient conditions.
I am an environmental chemist with training in molecular biology, and I am highly interested in studies of Boreal ecosystems (e.g. North Sweden) in response to climate and environmental changes in the past.
