Anne Lyche Solheim has been working as a researcher at NIVA since 1996, and as research manager for the Section for biodiversity and eutrophication in freshwater from 2000-2005. She has worked as visiting scientist at the EU Commission Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy from 2006-2007, and since then as senior researcher and research coordinator for the EU Water Framework Directive at NIVAs Section for Integrated Water Resources Managment, Center for Inland Water Research. She has a PhD degree (Dr. philos from 1996 from the University of Oslo) in plankton-ecology and response to eutrophication. Since 2000 she has worked primarily with R&D projects related to the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive, including development and intercalibration of methods for assessing good ecological status in rivers and lakes, with focus on phytoplankton. She is also responsible for acquisition and management of large national and international projects (e.g. BIOCLASS, REBECCA, WISER). Furthermore, she works as a consultant for the EU Commision on project related to WFD implementation. Another important part of her work is as a freshwater quality teamleader in the EEA Topic Center for Inland and Marine Waters with a special responsibility for reporting ecological status of rivers and lakes across Europe, based on data reported from all European countries.
