Presentation

I min forskning undersöker jag ekologiska länkar i havslandskapet (konnektivitet), både i tempererade och tropiska miljöer och är intresserad av hur olika habitat är länkade via fiskmigrationer. Jag är även intresserad av de ekologiska effekterna av skyddade områden och hur väl länkade nätverket av marina skyddade områden är med avseende på organismers sprindningsförmåga. I mitt arbete ingår också Beståndsanalys och Integrerad Ecosystemanalys.

ENGLISH
My main research focus involves ecological connectivity in both temperate and tropical seascapes. I am also interested in the ecological effects of no-take marine reserves and how ecologically coherent marine protected area (MPA) networks are regarding connectivity and representativity of important habitats. I am also involved in Stock Assessment and Integrated Ecosystem Assessment.
