Kort presentation

Jag är särskilt intresserad av kusthav och hur dessa områden fungerar, används och påverkas av människor. I min forskning använder jag ett multi- och transdisciplinärt tillvägagångssätt. Jag arbetar med att länka och kombinera flera olika forskningsämnen för att kunna förstå hur vi använder och påverkar kusthav. Jag är speciellt intresserad av stark hållbar utveckling, socialekologiska system och jobbar specifikt med sjögräs, fiske, tidvattenzonen, ekosystemtjänster och förvaltning.

Handledning av studentuppsatser

Om du är intresserad av att göra ett master eller kandidatarbete med mig som handledare så är du välkommen att kontakta mig via e-post. Inkludera gärna ett kort personligt brev och beskriv vilket ämne du är intresserad av samt CV med relevanta erfarenheter.

Jag leder ett stort forskningsnätverk, Indo-Pacific Seagrass Network, inom detta nätverk finns flertalet möjligheter till examensarbeten med fokus på sjögräs, sjögräsassocierade arter, fiske och dess förvaltning.

Jag forskar även inom fleara områden relaterade till stark hållbar utveckling, fiske och biodiversitet i grunda kusthav i Östersjön.

Jag handleder även forskningspraktik.
